Man United fans react to Victor Lindelof’s performance against CSKA Moscow

Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United just cannot stop scoring four goals. On Wednesday night, the victims were the hapless CSKA Moscow. Usually, away trips to Russia are a torrid affair, but the Red Devils made light work of it this time around.

To my personal surprise, Victor Lindelof was named in the starting XI. The 23-year-old Swede has struggled to adapt to life at Manchester United thus far, but, step-by-step, I’m sure he’ll get there.

The match against CSKA Moscow was another step in the right direction for him, in my opinion. Mourinho switched to a back three and that certainly seemed to suit the former SL Benfica man.

He looked more composed, positionally, he improved and his passing was as good as we’ve become used to in his short Old Trafford career thus far. Whether that’s because he had extra protection or the opponents were so poor it remains to be seen. But, it was certainly a nice little confidence booster for the centre-half.

As you’d imagine, Twitter was rather impressed with Lindelof’s display in the Champions League, and rightly so.
