Victor Lindelof opens up on 'tough competition' at Manchester United

Manchester United are on a roll this season.

Man United coach Jose Mourinho has hailed the quality and decisiveness of his substitutes following Saturday's 2-0 win over Leicester City.

Mourinho is still insisting United's fast start "means nothing" after watching his team win the first three games of last season only to finish sixth.

"They have not played the minutes they would have liked so far but they are all being very patient and waiting for their opportunity to become important for the team".

Most of the talk after the match was about Dean's performance in the contest. Out of the three teams, only Leicester probably possess quality attacking players of sufficient quality to worry top teams' defences.

"We kept creating, playing, creating chances and getting corners, and in the end it was from a corner that we scored the first goal". "There are one or two clubs up there, but none better".

While Frank DeBoer has only just taken over at Palace, he may already be on the hot seat after another embarrassing loss at home, this time 2-0 to Swansea City.

The team behind them is West Ham, which was beaten 3-0 away to Newcastle United. The result was open at 0-0 and it was obviously very hard. Martial scored as a sub for the second straight match. It could be make or break for Bilic, if he is still there.

He wrote: "It might be easy for people to praise the ones who have done so well in the opening games of the season, but I prefer to praise the wonderful professionals who are not playing".

United's other two summer signings Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic have been in top form since joining the club, but Lindelof hasn't even featured in the club's last two matchday squads.

The preseason match against LA Galaxy was a sign of things to come as he showed a lack of composure needed at this level and against Real Madrid also in pre-season, conceded a shocking penalty that allowed the European champions equalise through Casemiro.

He wasn't as prolific last season with six goals and three assists but he wasn't the only one as Leicester suffered a huge title hangover. Mourinho has done a good making tactical adjustments during each game.
