Manchester United suffered their first loss of the season at the hands of Huddersfield Town. The Terriers, simply put, just wanted it more than the Red Devils.
Jose Mourinho’s men just couldn’t get anything going when in possession of the football, with Romelu Lukaku leading a toothless attacking line.
The game was lost midway through the first half. A couple of defensive errors from Juan Mata and Victor Lindelof respectively led to two easy opportunities for Huddersfield; who took them with aplomb.
I’d like to focus on the overall game from Lindelof, however. The Swede, nicknamed the Iceman, just couldn’t get into the match. He cut a nervous figure as soon as he stepped onto the field, and he put in a shambolic performance.
Whether he’s finding it tough to transition to the English game remains to be seen, but we have to be worried about the former SL Benfica defender. He just looks lost when it comes to positioning, as well as being a yard off the pace. Who knows, in a year, Lindelof could be a completely different player, but right now, he doesn’t look capable of playing for this great club.
Check out the tweets aimed at Victor Lindelof here:
It was game over the soon as Phil Jones went off. Victor Lindelof was woeful.

Lindelof costs us the game. Absolutely embarrassing, that’s why he’s not played a single PL game yet.

Lindelof should work in IKEA and not be professional footballer for Manchester United…

Not a knee jerk comment but Axel Tuanzebe is streets ahead of Victor Lindelof.

Lindelof. Jesus Christ.

People need to cut Lindelof some slack. Yes, he had a mare, but so did Evra, Vidic, De Gea etc early on. Give him time

I've never liked lindelof and I don't think I ever will. At least Rojo stands he's ground and fights at the back #mufc fucks sake
