Manchester United 1-0 Luton Town: Victor Lindelof’s strike gives hosts narrow win

Victor Lindelof scores for Manchester United against Luton Town
Victor Lindelof scored his first Premier League goal of the season

Manchester United secured a much-needed victory over Luton at Old Trafford to ease the pressure on manager Erik ten Hag.

A rare goal from Sweden defender Victor Lindelof, his first since December 2020, proved enough to reward the hosts’ dominance.

It should have been more, with Rasmus Hojlund, Marcus Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho all guilty of wasting excellent opportunities.

But a second successive clean sheet, for the first time this season, helped secure the points to please Ten Hag, less so the injury that forced star striker Hojlund off 11 minutes from time.

That is four Premier League wins out of five games for United though, even if their cup form – at home and abroad – has not been as good.

It also means they head into a potentially significant international break on a positive note given it could bring confirmation of an addition to the United ownership in the form of Ineos owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

More to follow.
