EPL: Ten Hag praises Manchester United's star after a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Following Manchester United's 1-0 Premier League victory over Aston Villa on Sunday, manager Erik ten Hag singled out defender Victor Lindelof, describing him as a "brilliant player."

After 39 minutes, midfielder Bruno Fernandes scored the game's only goal to seal the victory, which tightens their grip on a top-four finish.

During the injuries to Lisandro Martinez and Raphael Varane, Lindelof partnered Luke Shaw in the heart of United's defence.

Luke Shaw and Lindelof helped Man United keep another clean sheet with the Swede in particular impressing, making a superb goal line clearance to deny Douglas Luiz with 10 minutes remaining.

“[Victor Lindelof] played brilliantly. He was totally in control in the area around [Ollie] Watkins,” ten Hag said.

Manchester United kept their spot in fourth place with the victory and are two points behind Newcastle United in third with a game in hand.
