Victor Lindelof is confident that Manchester United can remain competitive in the Premier League this season.
The Red Devils made a winning start to the new Premier League campaign thanks to a 2-1 win over Leicester City at Old Trafford on Friday night.
The Sweden international started their Premier League opener as goals from Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw sealed three points for the hosts.

The Swedish centre-half struggled to hold down a regular starting spot in the Manchester United team following his switch to Old Trafford.
However, Lindelof is feeling upbeat about the Premier League campaign ahead of their next fixture at Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday evening.
“It’s a very tough, competitive league with a lot of great teams,” Lindelof told Man United’s website. “Every game matters and we’ll try our best to win them all.
“We have to get that winning mentality in every game, in every situation – we have to be 100 per cent in everything we do.”
Manchester United finished in second place in the Premier League table last season but the Red Devils ended the campaign 19 points adrift of champions Manchester City.
The Red Devils signed Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred, FC Porto defender Diogo Dalot and Stoke City goalkeeper Lee Grant in a £1.5m deal in the 2018 summer transfer window.
