Video: Lindelof makes important clearance early on v Real Sociedad

Victor Lindelof gets his fair share of criticism most weeks, so we’re taking some time to applaud him after a moment of brilliance.

Not so much a moment of brilliance for the team because Real Sociedad were threatening the goal.

They could have easily scored if it wasn’t for Victor Lindelof — and I don’t think I’ve said that very often.

Anyhow, credit when it’s due. Just 15 minutes into the game Lindelof cleared his line when it would have been a tap-in for the Real Sociedad forward lurking inside the box.

A goal for United should settle the tie but it’s important we strike force. If we can go in at half-time 1-0 up on the night, the aggregate scoreline turns to 5-0 with four away goals.

Nail in the coffin stuff.
