THE BIGGER PICTURE: The goal is the 14th that Diallo has scored since joining Sunderland on loan from Manchester United. The 20-year-old will hope to have impressed Erik ten Hag enough to earn a chance in the United first-team next season, with the club’s fans salivating at the prospect of seeing him link up with Alejandro Garnacho, who scored on the same day in a 2-0 win against Wolves.
“Rashford, Garnacho, Amad & Antony as wing option next season,” one fan wrote with an image of LeBron James that read: “Smiling through it all! Can’t believe this is my life.”
“Garnizzy and Amad goals on the same day,” said another with an image of a young Cristiano Ronaldo posing beside Lionel Messi.
“Garnacho x Amad linkup next season will be brazy,” was another supporter’s verdict.
WHAT NEXT FOR DIALLO? Ivory Coast international Diallo and his Sunderland co-stars will look to progress to the play-off final by beating Luton over the two legs.
Who should be Man Utd’s No.9 next season?
