Manchester United Football Club did it! Champions League football will return to Old Trafford next season. Last night’s 2-0 victory away at Leicester was courtesy of yet another solid defensive base. This time it was the Ice Man who impressed. Check out the best fan reaction to an excellent performance from Victor Lindelof vs Leicester City.
After scooping our first Man of the Match award this season, the praise has been pouring in for Lindelof. He definitely timed it right to have his best game of the term, that’s for sure.
Before kick-off, I’ll be the first to admit I was worried about Jamie Vardy’s pace against Harry Maguire. Instead, the Ice Man stepped up and single-handedly took the English speedster out of the game.
Positionally he was excellent. The Swede was tough in the tackle, great in the air and his passing out from the back was pretty good, too. It was the complete centre-back performance.
It’s just so hard to gauge Lindelof as a footballer. He’ll go from brilliant one week to an absolute liability the next. If he can find that consistency, there’s a proper footballer in there.
The question is, has Ole Gunnar Solskjaer already made up his mind? There’s a real possibility the Baby Faced Assassin dips his toes into the water at the heart of defence over the summer.
For me, as a third or fourth choice option, Lindelof would be excellent. He’d be able to slot in where needed from time-to-time, as opposed to having all the pressure on his shoulders. He was superb last night, though, and he deserves credit for that.
As you’d expect, United fans all across the globe were heaping the praise on the 26-year-old for his top display vs Leicester. We’ve compiled our best reactions below.
