Manchester United have struggled this season because of complacency, states Victor Lindelof.
The Red Devils are 7th in the Premier League table and 9 points behind the top four spot.
Their last win came against Brighton & Hove Albion which was a strike in the right direction. United remains the only side to have collected points against Liverpool this season and has also managed to beat Leicester City and Chelsea. However, they fell to shock defeats against West Ham United, Bournemouth, Crystal Palace and Newcastle United.
“I generally think there is one thing we need to get better at if we are going to get back to the level Manchester United should be at: that’s winning matches week in and week out,” Lindelof told Aftonbladet while on international duty with Sweden.
“Sometimes it does not have to be neat, but you should win anyway. There’s been a bit of a problem – If we go into the matches against big clubs, we’re all connected, and we get results. Then a few days go by and we meet a slightly lower team, then we have to go in exactly the same way, not get comfortable.
“We start well, play fast and get to positions – but then we stop with it after 20 minutes, complicate it and play poorly.”
