I think Jose knew as well, the other players who can play at LCB are Jones and Rojo and they’re always injured.Loved just now Ole went up to him and yelled “Victor!” (in accent. He will be a nailed starter, happy for him.
Took Ole and Phelan one day to figure that out.
I'd rather not change a system that produced that performance. Just make sure whoever partners him is alert if he moves into midfield along with Matic dropping back and we'll be golden as is.Now play
Bailly - Lindelöf - Rojo
& allow Lindelöf to roam like a madman covered by 2 prison guards.
He was. Did the most defensively, did well going forward like Lindelof. Lindelof had the great move to put Rashford through but Jones made better use of the ball overall. 5 long balls, 5 found their target. Lindelof 8 and 1.No need to shit on Jones, thought he was excellent as well.
Well to use this kind of player in Jose's system made people think that way. It is hard to look good and get everything right 100% when you are on back foot all the time.This guy is pretty good, and to think everyone wrote him off a year ago!
I've basically said Lindelof looked much better of the two today. I can't help comparing them - Jones has been here forever it seems and today Lindelof came across as the commanding leader at the back despite the shorter and more tentative tenure.No need to shit on Jones, thought he was excellent as well.
If he was the commanding leader at the back how come Jones did all the defending?I've basically said Lindelof looked much better of the two today.

Not really anything to fret about.
This guy.One great piece of play bringing the ball forward and one or two other decent ones. Jones did the majority of the defending and Lindelof did have 1 moment where he tried to play his attacker offside on the halfway line and it led to Zohore getting an attempt on goal that De Gea had to deal with.
He also played 8 long balls with 1 finding their target. So he ended up with the lowest passing percentage of our outfield players with 76.6%
Some were fine for players to chase after, some others werent so good.
