United last lifted the League Cup in 2017 and as a final traditionally played in February or March in the modern English football calendar, it has regularly become the first cup competition up for grabs in a campaign.

Dalot is determined to go all the way to the final – to be played on Sunday 26 February this term – and lift the honour with the Reds, but knows that is easier said than done having only been as far as the semi-final stage before with United.

“Obviously, to arrive there, to go to Wembley, it’s a tough journey. We know, it’s difficult,” the young full-back continued, answering a question about the impact winning the tournament could have, from supporter Marc Henry.

“But we want to take these small steps first. And every time we make a step, we want to do it with the certainty that we are moving in the right direction, and I think we are in the right direction but the reality is that we are not there yet. 

“But to arrive there, we have to build many things first and I think this competition would a very first big and firm step that we could take, especially because it is the first trophy of the season, and we are close.”
