Victor Lindelof has been full of praise for new Manchester United signing Tyrell Malacia following another impressive pre-season display against Crystal Palace.

The full-back earned himself a 7/10 rating from 90min for his performance in the win on Tuesday, as the Red Devils retained their 100% record under new manager Erik ten Hag. Man Utd have recorded wins over Crystal Palace, Melbourne City and a thumping 4-0 victory over arch rivals Liverpool so far this month.

Speaking after the 3-1 win over Palace, Lindelof spoke highly of Malacia, stating: "He is looking really good.

"I've talked to him a little bit, and he seems like a great guy. I think he's going to fit right in with the squad with all of the guys.

"I'm looking forward to training with him more and working with him, but he is looking really, really good."

Ten Hag also spoke after the game, outlining how Manchester United can make improvements ahead of his first Premier League campaign in charge at Old Trafford: "The timing. When you start the press. For instance, I see still switches we can avoid and we can prepare a better press.

"And I think, also on the ball, we play well but you see, in the end, when it's 2-0 or 3-0 up, the belief is increasing. And then, also on the ball, we can delay and we can postpone and we can fight opponents so they come out and we can speed up."
