Loads of fans praise underrated Man United star after immaculate showing vs AC Milan

Manchester United fans singled out Victor Lindelof for special praise in the 1-0 Europa League victory over AC Milan at the San Siro.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side progressed through to the last-eight thanks to Paul Pogba’s moment of brilliance early after his half-time substitution. 

But United had to rely on solid defensive efforts with and needed another clean sheet to seal the tie after scoring just a solitary goal in Milan.

And Lindelof was the pick of the bunch for Solskjaer’s men, building on his outstanding form for the Reds in recent weeks.

United have conceded just one goal in their last seven games and their Swedish international has played a vital role, reading play exquisitely and showing composure with and without possession.

Lindelof is often maligned by supporters when underperforming but recent performances at the Etihad against Manchester City and in Milan this evening prove why he is so important to Solskjaer.

He was a contender for man-of-the-match this evening after dealing with the threat of compatriot Zlatan Ibrahimovic upon his arrival and was deservedly praised by supporters on social media at full-time.
