Manchester United centre-back Victor Lindelof is unhappy with his own performance and has criticised his play after Sweden’s 1-1 draw with Norway on Sunday evening.

Lindelof had a good game and even scored in Sweden’s 4-0 win over the Faroe Islands last Thursday but Sweden were held in their next Euro 2020 qualifier in a 1-1 draw with Norway.

The 25-year-old has admitted that he didn’t play up to his high standards.

“I think I played a lousy game,” Lindelof told VG.

“I have high standards. I think I just had two passes forward.

“I should have controlled the game more but I didn’t.

“Everything was bad from our side. We had all the preconditions to play a good game.

“We played at home, with fantastic fans, against Norway, but we lose two points. Why? I have no idea.”

Manchester United return to Premier League action against Leicester City on Saturday, and Lindelof will be hoping his side return to winning ways.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side currently sit eighth in the Premier League having not gotten another win since the 4-0 win over Chelsea, while the Foxes lie in third place.
