Victor Lindelof knows Manchester United will be unable to relax for a second at Manchester City in Sunday’s derby, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

United head to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday after one of their most memorable European away days, as United dug deep to secure a late 2-1 comeback victory in the Champions League.

It was ideal preparation for Sunday’s trip to Pep Guardiola’s City, where another tough 90 minutes lies in wait for Lindelof and his team-mates.

“It’s a very good team, especially at home,” the Swedish centre-back said.

“It’s going to be a very tough task but we feel very confident we can go there and make it difficult for them.

“It’s two completely different teams but the win [at Juventus] gave us a lot of confidence which is always good.

“They are a very good team with very good players, so you have to be on your toes all the time and can’t relax for a second.

“You have to be focused and ready for everything so I’m looking forward to the game.

“Hopefully I will play and help the team to another win.”

Asked whether beating City on the back of defeating Juventus could be a turning point in United’s season, Lindelof said: “I think so, yes.

“Obviously, we want to win every game but we had a quite difficult start at the beginning of the season.

“But now we have got some good results in the last few games and we just have to keep working hard every day and go game by game.”

A difficult start would also aptly describe how Lindelof fared United after leaving Benfica last year.

The 24-year-old had some difficult moments during his maiden campaign but has kicked on this term and started all five matches since the last international break.

“It feels good,” said Lindelof. “I’ve been playing a lot of games since the start of the season, I’m just trying to keep on going and doing the best for the team.

“At the moment I feel good – my body is fresh. I never doubt [myself]. I’ve always been confident.”
