Man United fans react to brilliant Victor Lindelof display vs AC Milan

Victor Lindelof was nothing short of sublime against AC Milan last night, the Man United fans would heap praise on him by the masses.

After a pretty poor team display in the home leg, Manchester United more than made up for it in the San Siro last night.

This team has had its critics this season, particularly defensively. Most of that blame has been warranted but recently, the Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof partnership has looked absolutely superb.

At this point in time, I’d like to focus on the Ice Man. I don’t say this lightly, but this could have been his best performance in Red Devils colours. Talk about rising to the occasion.

Physically strong, making massive tackles, key blocks and winning the aerial battle. Lindelof would also carry the ball out from the back from time-to-time, too. In these high-pressure situations, the Swede often wilts. On this occasion, he was by far and away United’s best performer – and it was absolutely delightful to watch him defend so diligently.

It begs the obvious question of ‘why can’t he play like this every week’, but in the here and now, I’m all for Lindelof partnering Maguire for the season’s remainder. He’s earned one final chance to try and persuade Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he is the long-term man for the job. Heck, he was doing his best Paolo Maldini impression in the Italian’s own backyard!

As you’d imagine, United fans would heap the praise on the 26-year-old, who was simply outstanding for 90 minutes against Milan. We’ve compiled our favourite tweets below.
