Manchester United fans praise Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire


Manchester United fans were stunned by the performances of their center-backs, with Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof standing out widely against AC Milan.

The oft-criticized duo had to keep a clean sheet to give their team the best chance to continue and score against the Italian giants.

Milan had the advantage going into the second leg as they technically led away goals.

This meant it was up to United to attack and score as many goals as possible to qualify for the next round of the Europa League.

Paul Pogba scored just one goal quickly after the break so the defense had to prove their worth and it is safe to say that Maguire and Lindelof did.

The duo played side by side more than any other center-back partnership, but their weaknesses were not visible against Milan.

Manchester United had their backs to the wall by no means, but the home side certainly tried to put pressure on the defense as much as possible.

Thankfully Lindelof and Maguire stood up and pushed away whatever came their way, making the intense end of the match much easier to see.
