It really was a dramatic evening for the Manchester United supporters propping up the bar here in the Transfer Tavern last night. Indeed, after falling 0-2 down away at relegation-threatened Crystal Palace, our resident Red Devils were fuming with Jose Mourinho and his men.
However, United proved their fighting spirit by turning the game on its head and running out 3-2 winners at Selhurst Park as Chris Smalling, Romelu Lukaku and a last-minute Nemanja Matic stunner securing a thrilling victory for the away side.
While such a game is obviously a huge cause for celebration, not many United fans are overly delighted with some of the players, as you can well imagine. In our bar, one of the main men picking up criticism has been Victor Lindelof, who has failed to wholly convince since his summer move from Benfica.
The Swede turned his back on an Andros Townsend strike early on and saw the ball deflected into his own net, while also looking nervy in general during a crazy game in South East London. With that in mind, here’s a look at some of the reaction towards Lindelof to have emerged online.
That felt good but holy crap we need to sort out first half performances… and bin off Lindelof.

Thankfully Lindelof only cost £30m, won’t be such a loss when we sell him to Bournemouth for £10m.

Mourinho should kuku sell Lindelof and find Smallings replacement. They almost gave me a heart attack.
