Manchester United continued their resurgence after they beat Tottenham Hotspur last night at Wembley to go level on points with Arsenal. Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s appointment has boosted the squad and reinvigorated the fans.
A sixth consecutive win on the bounce for United came at the back of a man of the match display from David de Gea. A fine defensive display from Manchester United in addition to the keeper’s heroics helped them keep out an in form Spurs attack led by Harry Kane.
Manchester United look like a side reborn under the interim manager and a few players have shown drastic improvement over the last month.
Very few have given consistent performances since the beginning of the season and Victor Lindelof falls under that category for Red Devils.
The Swedish international had a tough time finding his feet in the Premier League initially but he did catch up eventually and has shown glimpses of quality at the back.
His style has often been compared to the legendary defender Nemanja Vidic. One of the moments where the Swede stopped a potential counter attack with a perfect slide tackle, was received with much admiration amongst the United fans who were quick to point out the uncanny resemblance with the Serbian.
The sumptuous tackle on Winks midway through the second half wasn’t the highlight of the game but surely was one of the likeable moments for the United faithful.
Manchester United now face Brighton before heading to Arsenal for an FA Cup showdown and the fans will expect the run of victories to continue for as long as it can.
Check out the tackle from Lindelof below –
