(Video) Victor Lindelof channeling his inner Vidic with a thumping sliding tackle during Man Utd v Brighton

Manchester United secured all 3 points after a 1-0 win against Brighton & Hove Albion last night.

The Old Trafford side had very few bright spots to boast of in the match, including a spirited showing from the old warhorse Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and a stellar performance by fellow Swede and man of the match, Victor Lindelof.

The 23-year-old defender impressed fans and pundits alike with his excellence at the back line, including a crunching tackle on winger Anthony Knockaert to deny Brighton a counter attack which earned him favourable comparisons with yesteryear United star, Nemanja Vidic.

Manchester United supporters will be surely hoping for more of Lindelöf’s ‘Vidić-esque’ performances in matches to come.
