Flocking to Twitter, many Manchester United fans were less than impressed with the performance of defender Victor Lindelof as their side edged past Atalanta 3-2 on Wednesday evening.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, losing 2-0 just before the half hour mark courtesy of strikes from Mario Pasalic and Merih Demiral, had it all to do on a thoroughly enthralling night of Champions League football.
Does Ole Gunnar Solskjaer need to be sacked?
Yes, out of his depth
No, give him time
United’s unlikely fight back started early in the second half when Marcus Rashford fed off Bruno Fernandes’ sumptuous through ball to bury a neat finish into Atalanta’s bottom corner.
As the Red Devils kept knocking, it was an unlikely hero who stepped up next in Harry Maguire, with the England international defender netting a half volley at the back post for 2-2.
In typical Hollywood fashion, there was only one man set to take centre stage for United’s late winner as Cristiano Ronaldo leapt to meet Luke Shaw’s cross with a towering header and the eventual winner.
One man who certainly didn’t take any acclaim, however, was Sweden ace Lindelof – and it is clear to see why going by his numbers.
According to SofaScore, he was United’s second-lowest rated player on the night with a 6.5/10 and won none of his ground duels up against the Serie A side.
Flocking to Twitter, many supporters criticised his performance – find all of their verdicts down below.
