Man United fans want Victor Lindelof to start against Benfica

Manchester United will look to extend their unbeaten start to the season and maintain their 100% record in the Champions League when they face Benfica at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday night, and Red Devils fans want fringe defender Victor Lindelof to start against his former club.

The Sweden international arrived from the Portuguese giants during the summer, but while he has played every minute of their European and EFL Cup campaign, he only made his first Premier League appearance as a late substitute in the goalless draw against Liverpool on Saturday.

While he is currently behind Eric Bailly, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling in the centre-back pecking order, the 23-year-old will be hopeful of making the line-up against the team where he made his name.

Man United supporters were quick to have their say on Lindelof via social media, and while some said “he deserves to start”, others ‘want to see more of him’.
