#4 Victor Lindelof is the best Manchester United defender

When the Swedish central defender made his debut, many doubts where cast upon his credentials and ability to play in the Premier League after making his big-money move from Benfica.

The 24-year old was the best defender on the pitch on a day when the whole set of defenders from both the sides proved to be lackluster in their approach. The Swedish International was a rock at the back for Manchester United in the evening as the time after time thwarted Tottenham attack one after the other. The Swedish International was impressive in his positioning, let alone one or two mistakes, and kept Harry Kane largely occupied.

Victor Lindelof was equally impressive with his tackling as the 24-year old made sure he got his tackles right as he kept the Spurs attack largely at bay. His dangerous but precise tackle from behind to stop a Spurs attack in the second half being the best of the pick.
