His LPA/LPS combo is defo better than this, as Keyser suggested even back in late 2016. I remember some really good pinpoint passes, but everything else is not as good as i expected. I was impressed by him at u21 euro and some Benfica games, but obviously this is something very different.
He's a very tight marker, he tends to leave the D-line and try to push the striker as far as he can, leaving the space behind. He also can be seen too wide, always very keen to intercept ASAP, Lindelöf is a very very 'individual' defender that doesn't care much about holding the position and keeping the defensive unity. His extremely 'enforcing' style is something that i don't like and his TW looked even worse than this at numerous games this season. https://youtu.be/1BsMCotbOGM?t=26s
- This is the typical example of how Lindelof like to play, veey close to the striker, very aggressive. Look how Matić dropped to cover the space.https://youtu.be/1BsMCotbOGM?t=2m31s
- here, he's a fucking left back for some reason. Another example of his positional unawareness and individual style. That fail with Alexis is epic too.
His very obvious talent in disspossesing is still there, potential is huge, but i think he's failing to handle the pressure. Some amateurish mistakes, like that one vs Huddersfield, bad communication and silly little things are for me the clear sign that he isn't relaxed and focused as he should be. Playing with retard like Smalling won't help him at all tho.
His RES could go up to 85, tw to 69-70, LPA LPS 76/78.
