Lindelof joined the Red Devils last season but struggled to settle initially, finding himself in and out of Jose Mourinho’s side and looking a little out of his depth at Premier League level.
Now, however, the 24-year-old seems to have really grown into the role at United, and he’s also performing superbly for his country as well.
While some MUFC fans may be getting a tad carried away given the calibre of the opposition he’s up against tonight, it’s fair to say he’s really caused a stir among those watching him.
Here’s a round up of the most excited and enthusiastic tweets fans are coming out with on Lindelof right now…
Maybe the best I’ve ever seen Lindelöf tonight. Shutting down the Russian offense brilliantly w/ Granqvist, starting attacks and most notably: EXCEPTIONAL ball distribution. Topping it off with a goal. Forsberg was the one predicted to succeed Zlatan as the star, but Lindelöf is

"EXCEPTIONAL ball distribution" I've been saying this for a while now, Lindelof offers good distribution and passing whereas Bailly offers exceptional defensive solidity. The perfect pair https://t.co/xrKZrsuexo

Can we talk about how people called Lindelof a flop all the way until about last month…

I’m quietly confident about this Lindelof guy. He will come good for United. Growing every week.
