Man United fans were pretty happy with what they saw from Victor Lindelof last night.
Well, it was a forgettable evening for Manchester United on the whole, as the Red Devils were dumped out of the Carabao Cup. In truth, it’s a tournament that is better for giving squad players minutes over anything else.
I guess it’s one less cup to worry about for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who’ll have his sights firmly set on lifting one of the big-boy trophies this term.
However, there were some positives from the game. None more so than what Victor Lindelof did. The Swede has lost his place in the side to Raphael Varane recently, though he’s not going to just accept that.
Against West Ham, he’d stand out. The toughness in the tackle, winning headers in the air and setting the perfect tone for the whole defence. He’d play with both passion and calmness throughout.
Whether or not Solskjaer can be swayed into giving Lindelof a league start on the back of that performance remains to be seen. However, the Ice Man definitely did himself no harm.
Personally, I’d like to see Lindelof link up with Raphael Varane for a game or two, just to see how that works out. I’d like to think that’s a back two that could definitely work as both complement each other nicely.
As you’d imagine, the United fans were left impressed with the 27-year-old, who put in a solid outing vs West Ham. That was noticed by the fans on social media.
