The last part is very true. He often wins and heads the ball but it can end up and anywhere. And several times i just can’t decide if he should head or kick.Things Lindelöf does well defensively
-Positioning. Doesn't mess up the offside line and knows where he is needed.
-Blocking shots and key passes, both in midfield and in/around the box.
-Knowing when to slow down opposition attacks and when he can nick the ball. Very good at catching on to a poor touch
-Forcing opponents to take shots at poor angles/in a way that makes it easy for the keeper to catch
-Directing the defense
-Not getting flustered when passing with keeper/defense
Things he doesn't do very well
-Defensive corners, losing his mark or not seeing that another player should take priority as they have lost their marker.
-Not the strongest, but it appears this is something he is working on.
-Heads the ball short, misdirects it at times.
But i like our back 4. It Will get better and better!
