After a streak of poor performances, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is considering to drop Victor Lindelof against Tottenham Hotspur, reports Metro.
Spurs will be visiting the Old Trafford on Wednesday night and the Ole will be desperate to get some big results if he still wants to hold his position as Man Utd manager. Few big wins against the team like Tottenham will also help Man Utd re-assert their position as the top club in the Premier League, a title which has looked in some serious danger recently.
According to the Metro, Solskjaer could axe Lindelof from his starting line up as it’s widely felt that the Sweden international has suffered an alarming drop in form recently.
The report goes on to say that Solskjaer’s coaching staff feel Lindelof may be resting on his laurels somewhat after recently signing a new long-term contract earlier this season.
The 25-year-old had looked a much-improved performer for Man Utd, but it’s fair to say he’s not really been able to keep that run of form going.
It could now be the right decision to give him a little wake-up call, and MUFC fans will hope their defence can look a little more reliable against Spurs than it has done in recent matches.
