Victor Lindelof scored the winning goal for Manchester United at Old Trafford against Luton Town. The Swedish international also earned the highest average score on SofaScore with 8.5/10 points.
In fact, Lindelof only had the opportunity to start after the injury that Jonny Evans suffered in the match against Copenhagen. Anyway, coach Ten Hag’s decision was proven correct when Lindelof was the best player on the field.
On the defensive front, Lindelof played very solidly with 3 clearances, an interception, a rescue and a tackle. Besides, he won 3 out of 4 aerial duels and won 100% of duels.
However, it was not his defensive performance that earned him such high ratings. The Swedish player had 117 touches of the ball and was really decisive with 102 successful passes out of a total of 108 passes. Completion rate 94%.
Obviously Lindelof is not considered a mainstay in defense, but when needed, he knows how to speak up at the right time.
