Summer signing Victor Lindelof has yet to make a Premier League start for Man Utd, but he is already getting plenty of stick from supporters.
The Swedish defender came on as a substitute for the injured Phil Jones in the first-half at the John Smith’s Stadium against Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon, and was guilty of a huge error as the hosts took a two-goal lead just ten minutes after his introduction to the game.
Lindelof arrived from Benfica this past summer, and has only made four starts this season with three in the Champions League and one coming in the League Cup. Both Premier League appearances have come from the bench.
Given the fact that he has won three Portuguese league titles as well as the biggest domestic cup competition twice, it’s surprising to see him struggle to establish himself at Man Utd given he has experience at a high level and looked a really solid signing this summer based on previous performances.
However, some fans are not happy with his performance against Huddersfield in particular and took to Twitter to voice their displeasure.
It remains to be seen how long Jones is ruled out for, but Mourinho will surely have a tough job on his hands to restore Lindelof’s confidence after this one while Axel Tuanzebe could be an alternative option moving forward with United set to face Swansea City in the League Cup on Tuesday night.
It’s fair to say that there won’t be too many Man Utd fans hoping to see Lindelof feature in midweek…

Don’t want to be too cruel but in the ten minutes since Victor Lindelof came on MUFC have conceded as many goals as previous eight PL games

That is absolutely atrocious defending. Lindelof doesn’t look anywhere near ready to play for Utd

Sorry for shouting. But in a world where transfers fees are insane, Lindelof’s £30m fee looks like a rip off.

Lindelof has had a shocker. Long kick from Lossl drops over his head, Depoitre rounds De Gea and scores.

Remember when Lindelof was a better signing than Kolašinac, Bernardo Silva & Ederson because his announcement got more retweets?

Tim Sherwood already saying Victor Lindelof is not good enough after watching him play not more than 30 minutes in the Premier League.

Namanja Vidic turned 36 today and he'd still be more useful than Lindelof. pic.twitter.com/zNNnmbEi81

Lindelof is up there with Bebe as the worst player I’ve seen play for Manchester United. £31m ? Jesus

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

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