Ahead of our important UEFA Champions League meeting with Atalanta on Tuesday, Manchester United defender, Victor Lindelof, has urged the forwards of the club to continue banging in the goals so as to keep the team going.

United bounced back from a 5-0 loss to Liverpool, to hit 3 unreplied goals against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, and save Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job.

The win came after the gaffer effected some tactical changes to the team, which allowed for the attack to also contribute to defence.

Speaking after the game, Lindelof revealed he was delighted with the result, as he urged the attack to do more.

He told MUTV, “It was a good defensive game for us. But we helped each other a lot, we covered each other’s backs and I think that’s the main part about today’s game.

“I always say that if we keep a clean sheet we’re always going to score goals and that’s exactly what we did today. It was very important for us to as a team to keep a clean sheet and I think that’s something we can build on. It felt good.

“I think we defended well. Everyone from the strikers down to David De Gea, you know and I think that’s very important especially from the strikers if they help us out then it makes it easier for everyone.”

Lindelof was very instrumental to our win in the new 3-4-1-2 formation, but unfortunately, the Swede will not be a part of the game against Atalanta on Tuesday.
