Fans were quick to castigate ole gunner solskjaer over his Inclusion of victor Lindelof over Eric Baily in the lineup after the player was instrumental in his team getting a lucky win over Aston Villa in their last game.
Him being left out of the starting line up came as a shock to fans who believed that defensive masterclass from the Defender was enough to win him a place in the starting line up but it seems solskjaer had other plans.
Harry Maguire and Victor lindelof have in past times shown both could not be that defensive partners ole is forcing them to become as both plays similarly.
Eric Baily type is play is distinct from the two Defenders as he is more aggressive in winning the ball and quick to tackle opponents.
He is that no nonsense kind of Defender, the right partner to both lindelof and Maguire.
A match against Manchester city would have solidified the Defender place in the team as a regular as he would have frustrated the Manchester city attackers.
Although it could be that ole gunner solskjaer meant well for the team by reserving the player for the premier league match a more important game that the Efl cup.
Let’s see what this encounter brings 😃 but take a minute to see what this fans on Twitter are talking about victor Lindelof Inclusion remember the player just came back from Injury.
But Lindelof just came back from injury right? I dont know if they gonna cope up with city's pace.

McFred forced to sit back and bubble wrap Lindelof and Maguire tonight, can’t wait for us to sit deep and defend all night

Partly agree but Bailey is not playing based on the fact that Solskjaer rates Lindelof owed him, not to keep Bailey fit.
