Following Manchester United’s victory against Luton Town, club legend Paul Scholes has suggested that goalscorer Victor Lindelof has been unfortunate to not be starting more games.
The manager also refuted rumours that there is unrest between him and the former Real Madrid defender but chose to stick with Maguire this game. The English defender was the best player on the pitch.
Varane came onto the pitch later in the second half too, but Lindelof was the centre-back who stole the show with the matchwinner on Saturday.
Paul Scholes has suggested that the Sweden captain could be a good option to continue in the team for Ten Hag, however, added that the team dropped off once they went ahead.
“I think he’s probably been a little bit unlucky not to be playing more,” Scholes said of Lindelof on Premier League Productions. “Bit of a scramble but the type of game you expect a scrappy goal.
“Once they got that goal they really dropped off and let Luton [Town] come onto them. You’re expecting that second and third goal but it never happened.”
The central defender also agreed with the opinion of the former United midfielder and was delighted to score the goal to decide the game.
“I don’t score that many goals, but it’s always fun to help the team and today it was the matchwinner.
“I think we played well in the first half and after we scored the goal, the levels dropped down a little bit and I think that’s what we need to improve.
“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.”
