Manchester United fans single out one star for praise after Juventus defeat

Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof has received glowing reviews from supporters on social media after his latest Champions League display.

The 24-year-old centre-back’s career at Old Trafford has been blighted by inconsistency over the last year and a half, however, if Tuesday night’s performance against the Old Lady is anything to go by, he may have finally turned a corner.

The Swede stood-out with his commanding presence in the heart of the defence for Jose Mourinho’s men and did everything he could to prevent a Cristiano Ronaldo inspired opposition from running away with the game.

A Paulo Dybala first-half strike ultimately earned Juve a 1-0 win, but Lindelof can walk away with his head held high after earning the approval of fans across Manchester.

 

This particular supporter singled the defensive stalwart out for praise as the team’s best performer on the night, while many others joined him on Twitter with positive comments.

The Red Devils poor start to the season drags on, but Lindelof seems to be growing into his role in the starting XI and winning the trust of Mourinho, who opted to keep him in defence following his display against Chelsea on Saturday in the Premier League.

United must now focus their attention on a huge domestic clash against Everton at the Theatre of Dreams on Sunday, which is a must-win game if they are to stay within sight of joint league leaders Manchester City and Liverpool.
