Victor Lindelof desperate for chance

Victor Lindelof admits that he has endured a tough start to life at Manchester United but hopes to force his way into the starting lineup sooner rather than later.

The Sweden international joined United at the start of the summer in a £39.5million deal from Benfica but he has yet to make his Premier League debut.

Lindelof has been left out of United’s matchday squad for two of their opening three games with Jose Mourinho preferring the likes of Eric Bailly, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling.

The Red Devils have made a perfect start to 2017-18, winning all three of their Premier League outings, scoring 10 times and keeping three successive clean sheets.

United, who are priced at 3.25 to win the Premier League, are next in action against Stoke on September 9 as they kick off a busy month, which sees them return to the Champions League and begin their involvement in the Carabao Cup.

Lindelof believes he is starting to settle into life in England and hopes he can force his way into contention on a more regular basis.

“It’s clear that you always want to play. It’s tough competition with very good players.

So we’ll see how it gets, but of course you always want to play,” Lindelof told fotbollskanalen.

“I have just got to the club. The last training week has gone very well and I feel I’m getting into it more and more.”
