Against Manchester City on Sunday, Victor Lindelof is looking forward to the matchup with the Red Devils.
Despite the fact that everyone in the Manchester United squad is “looking forward” to Sunday’s match against derby rivals Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, centre-back Victor Lindelof insists that everyone in the squad is “looking forward.”
When these two teams met in November, United was beaten 2-0 by City at Old Trafford. This weekend, they will make the short trip across town in search of a win. A goalless draw against Watford at Old Trafford last weekend despite the Reds creating more than enough chances to take all three points was a disappointment.
United’s lead over fourth-place West Ham was reduced to just two points after the draw with Watford was followed by West Ham’s win over Wolves less than 24 hours later. Due to the fact that West Ham are playing first this weekend (a trip to Liverpool on Saturday evening), the top four picture may have changed by the time the London derby kicks off on Sunday (4.30pm kick off).
United will travel to the Etihad Stadium as underdogs, despite the fact that they have won their last three league and cup matches there. With City currently riding high at the top of the table, United will be looking to continue their winning streak. As a result, they will be hoping that their previous experience will be beneficial.
United’s players, according to Lindelof, are looking forward to the game and are well aware of the importance of being well-prepared if they hope to come away with the win.
“I think it’s something that everyone is looking forward to,” Lindelof said in an interview with the club’s official website. “Given the magnitude of the game, and the desire to participate in the biggest games, I believe everyone is extremely, extremely excited for this one.
“For the time being, we’re just trying to get ourselves as prepared as possible. Hopefully, we will be able to put on a good show on the field.
