Frank Lampard has admitted there are still question marks hanging over Victor Lindelof ahead of Manchester United’s clash against Everton on Sunday afternoon.

The Sweden international moved to Manchester United in a £30.7m deal from Portuguese club Benfica in the summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old centre-half made an uncertain start to his Old Trafford career following a number of high-profile mistakes during pre-season.

Lindelof was a noticeable absentee in Manchester United’s opening four Premier League games as the Red Devils won three times and drew 2-2 at Stoke City.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho handed the Swedish defender his first start of his Red Devils career for their Champions League opener on Tuesday night.

And Lindelof helped Manchester United ease to a 3-0 victory over Swiss champions Basel alongside his centre-half partner Chris Smalling.

However, former Chelsea midfielder Lampard believes there are still question marks lingering over Lindelof ahead of this weekend’s clash against Everton.

“There have been a few question-marks,” Lampard told BT Sport. “In pre-season it didn’t go so well for him and Jose Mourinho has the luxury of being able to mix it around.”

Manchester United are sitting at the top of the Premier League table thanks to their superior goal difference over Manchester City.

The Red Devils also signed Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic in the summer transfer window.
