Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof has urged his teammates to do a better job of “controlling games” after eking out a narrow win over Luton Town at Old Trafford.
The Swede, who started in place of Jonny Evans, scored the only goal of the game just before the hour mark on Saturday, finding the net in the Premier League for the first time in nearly three years.
The Red Devils enjoyed the majority of chances and possession in the contest, but failed to make it count on the scoreboard.
“I don’t score many goals and when I do it is fun. The most important thing was getting the points and thankfully we got that today,” Lindelof told Premier League Productions.
“I thought we played well in the first half today. We kept the ball and we were patient. We created chances as well. After we scored we dropped down a little bit in level and that is what we need to improve – to keep controlling the game.
“It is about getting the results. We need to stick together and do our thing. Hopefully, we can play better in the future as well.”
Man United move up to seventh in the Premier League table on 21 points after 12 games. After the international break they travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton in their next league outing.
