Lindelof has impressed in recent games, though is now on the outer after Eric Bailly‘s return from injury.
The Swede told Viasat: “I knew it was going to be tough, I was ready for that. The league is very tough and different compared to Portugal. So that’s about what I expected.
“It’s my first season but I really feel I can be a very good football player with the help of the coaches I have here and teammates.”
On manager Jose Mourinho, Lindelof added: “I would say he is very good with his management. Very easy to talk to. If you want something, you can always talk to him, so it is.”
