Manchester United's Victor Lindelof admits it's tough not playing regularly

Aug 31, 2017, 01:22

Manchester United made it three wins out of three as substitutes Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini gave them a 2-0 victory over Leicester City at Old Trafford on Saturday to send them clear at the top of the Premier League. Jose Mourinho's men look like one of the top title contenders, and have dazzled everyone with their recent play. It was a better first-half performance than in either of the 4-0 wins over West Ham and Swansea, but United should then have gone ahead shortly after the re-start.

"We had a very good preseason". United not only scored ten goals in 3 Premier matches, but they also managed to secure the clean-sheets in each of these matches.

"That's why need them (the substitutes), because they can change the game", United midfielder Paul Pogba said.

United have made three signings so far in this window, bringing in Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic, though Mourinho is still interested in landing a fourth and final player as he bids to carve out a premier league-winning squad. Perisic has seemingly U-turned on his intention to join United and looks set to sign a new contract with Inter, while Bale has started both of Real's opening two La Liga games in a strong indication he will be involved in Zinedine Zidane's plans. And it is worth mentioning that the team probably would not have won the match had not been for the subs.

Mourinho made his first move by bringing on Rashford for Mata and the England global had the desired impact, netting in the 70th minute. And as if that wasn't enough, Lingard injected some much-needed pace to the attacking line.

United were completely dominant in the first half and had a goal disallowed for offside in the 18th minute.

The conclusions are easy to understand.

The Sweden global centre-back has found himself behind Eric Bailly, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling in the pecking order at Old Trafford but, nevertheless, he feels he is beginning to settle into his new club.

Manchester United have played three BPL matches so far before the global break.
