Manchester United’s Victor Lindelof has lauded the club’s attackers following their display vs Swansea, insisting they enjoyed themselves in the win.
The front four worked well together, interchanging positions, passing well and using the width of the pitch too to allow United to win the match in essentially 20 minutes.
Lukaku got things kicked off for his side quickly by grabbing his 100th Premier League goal while Sanchez doubled the lead.
The Red Devils cruised for the rest of the match and Lindelof has insisted it was the attackers’ performance that allowed the rest of the team to settle.
According to the Daily Star, Victor said: “I think we started the game very good, we kept the ball very well and then we scored two very good goals.
“In the second half we came out and they had a few chances, but other than that we controlled the game very well. The front players had great movement and had a great buzz between them.
“They had a lot of freedom and I think they showed it out there – they had a lot of fun.”
The Swede was brought in from Benfica by the Portuguese manager and while he’s taken a while to adjust to his new surroundings, he has been trusted more and more often lately.
Lindelof is perhaps Manchester United’s most outstanding defender in terms of his ability on the ball with Bailly and Marcos Rojo considered decent passers as well.
Strangely enough, Chris Smalling, who is notoriously known for his inability to pass, was selected by Mourinho to start alongside the former Benfica man.
Perhaps the former Chelsea manager was seeking a balance of sorts or attempting to protect Eric from sustaining further injuries following the international break.
