Manchester United fans react to concerning Victor Lindelof performance against Burton

Manchester United just keep marching on. Jose Mourinho has his Red Devils playing an attractive brand of football, which is in stark contrast to his predecessor, Louis van Gaal.

On Wednesday night, Burton Albion visited Old Trafford in the third round of the Carabao Cup – a game that United dominated from start to finish, and eventually running out 4-1 winners.

It was the first time that the fans got to take a look at Victor Lindelof in action against English opposition, and on the whole, I have to admit, I’m worried about the young Swede.

When in possession he looked nervous and sloppy, which is poor given the quality of opposition. Everything just looked a struggle for him, as if the work he was doing wasn’t natural. Whether that’s just teething problems as he adapts to life in a new country remains to be seen.

The main thing you’re looking out for is obviously his defensive traits. However, aerially he didn’t read the flight of the ball very well, often he was outmuscled by his marker and positionally he was way off.

I thought I was the only one who thought that the one they call The Iceman struggled, but the majority of Twitter tended to agree…
