Lindelof explains why Man Utd ‘play poorly’ against lesser sides

Date published: Thursday 14th November 2019 9:02

Victor Lindelof thinks Manchester United have failed to turn up against some of the lesser clubs this season because they get too “comfortable”.

The Red Devils have lost to the likes of Crystal Palace, Newcastle United, West Ham and Bournemouth in the Premier League this season, while they have got positive results against Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Leicester City.

And Lindelof wants United to get back to playing at the same level against all opponents with a trip to newly-promoted Sheffield United on the horizon.

“I generally think there is one thing we need to get better at if we are going to get back to the level Manchester United should be at: that’s winning matches week in and week out,” Lindelof told Aftonbladet.

“Sometimes it does not have to be neat, but you should win anyway.

“There’s been a bit of a problem – If we go into the matches against big clubs, we’re all connected, and we get results.

“Then a few days go by and we meet a slightly lower team, then we have to go in exactly the same way, not get comfortable.

“We start well, play fast and get to positions – but then we stop with it after 20 minutes, complicate it and play poorly.”
