Lindelof's return to centre-back will be vital for Manchester United this week

Manchester United face a huge double-header this week, with Manchester City and Chelsea both coming to Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side has faltered in recent weeks. But their campaign is far from over.

Back-to-back wins against their fierce rivals will change everything. And the return of Victor Lindelof as a centre-back could be vital.

The Swede has switched to right-back in recent games. But his absence in the centre has seen United ripped apart, conceding seven goals in two games.

Lindelof has been sensational for much of this season. So it is no surprise that moving him to the side has seen United’s back line rediscover its previous wobbles.

United will have to be at their very best to keep some of the Premier League’s finest attackers at bay tonight and again on Sunday.

The £31million signing (BBC) took time to settle at United. But he is now one of the first names on the team sheet.

With Ashley Young, Diogo Dalot and Luke Shaw all available for the full-back positions, there is no reason for Lindelof to be shifted again.

He is United’s best centre-back and that is exactly where he needs to play as they face a massive few days.
