The 23-year-old defender has struggled to adapt to English football since moving from Benfica for more than £30 million last summer and was initially used primarily in the Champions League by Jose Mourinho, as he was tonight.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scored a sublime opener on 65 minutes but United came roaring back and secured a shock victory courtesy of a fine Juan Mata free-kick and a bundled set-piece in the final few minutes.
Anthony Martial was probably United’s best performer overall, and Mata will understandably win plaudits for his exquisite free-kick, but Lindelof continues to grow into a Red Devil, and it seems supporters are noticing:
Lindelof is Man of the Match. Hands down! 💯

I have slandered both of them a lot, but Lindelof has really proved himself and Mou got it spot on tonight, incredible

Lindelof > Chellini and Bonucci

Manchester United enjoying a rather professional first-half. Very removed from the near disaster at Bournemouth. Shaw and Lindelof both standouts, but United have at least posed a half-threat in attack.

43' – Lindelof has been fantastic so far, much like the fixture at Old Trafford #mulive

Lindelof has been great

Lindelof just needs to shave his hair and look like a nutter, then he's set for greatness.

Lindelof again the best Utd player. Been on the end of every ball. Excellent. Pogba been so sloppy. Matic poor again.

Has Lindelof arrived as an elite United defender? What do you think?
