Lindelof’s take on a ‘deserved’ win
Victor Lindelof praised United’s patience and pressing, after Sunday’s win…
You must be so happy with that performance? Yeah obviously we are so pleased with the performance. We defended really well as a team, not just the back four. I think we defended well, right down from Anto to Deano. Everyone put in the effort that was needed and we got a clean sheet and three points, so everyone was happy. You have to concentrate don’t you, when you’re playing against them for 90 minutes? How difficult is it? You didn’t seem to be in a lot of trouble at any point… No, like I said, we defended well today. They didn’t create a lot of chances. We defended really good and you always have to stay focused because you know they can create chances from anything. Like I said, I’m very happy and it’s a very deserved win for us. And it was genuinely a deserved win wasn’t it? It could have been more actually, it wasn’t a fortunate win… Most definitely. I think we deserved the win. We wanted to win the game and get the three points. That was always our main objective coming into this game. We got the perfect start to the game and tried to build from there. It takes patience in these kind of games and get opportunities to score so well done to everyone. I suppose when you make a start like that, it settles everyone down, doesn’t it? Perfect start with a penalty after 30 seconds really… No, exactly. We wanted to come out quick and press them high and try to be on the front foot. You can’t get a better start than that. Luke Shaw among the goals too. We don’t see that too often, but it was a great goal, wasn’t it? Yeah, a great goal. We saw he was free, he got the ball from Deano and it was a great run and great finish. I’m very happy for him. He’s been performing well throughout the whole season and he managed to get a goal today. Hopefully he can shoot more often and score some more! In terms of confidence with some really big games coming up, to come here and win what does that do? We are always confident going into every game. We know we can beat every team. It’s a very tough away game to play against a really good team. It shows what a great team we are and what we can do on the pitch so we need to keep working hard and hopefully we can get some more wins.
