The Swedish international has endured a variable third season and was directly blameworthy for goals United conceded early on in the campaign, having received a new contract in September, but his ability to neutralise world class forwards was again on show in the 2-1 win over Tottenham, as he dealt with Harry Kane.

Lindelof drew praise last term for performances against Juventus talisman Cristiano Ronaldo and Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain.

The 25-year-old scored at the weekend against Aston Villa and has started every league game he has been available for this season.

“He’s been proving critics wrong,” Solskjaer told the Manchester Evening News.

“You’ll always have critics at Man United. If you score two, you should’ve scored three, if you win 3-0, you should’ve been winning 4-0.

“Victor’s so calm and composed on the ball and that’s part of our play, with him and Harry [Maguire], they’re so important in the build-up, that we take some risks. Maybe the goal we conceded could have been avoided, that pass into Scotty that got nicked.

“But Victor scored a goal last week, he’s becoming a leader in the group and playing more or less every single game, so I’m very pleased with him.”
