Manchester United got their first win in four outings last night, with Louis van Gaal giving a full European debut to the young Jesse Lingard who has impressed in recent weeks. Once again the academy product put in another good performance, and he has earned praise from a particular United hero.
Paul Scholes has singled Lingard out for his output in the game, as well as being extremely delighted about he wonderful pass he played in for Wayne Rooney’s goal.
“You need to give them credit, Jesse Lingard deserves a special mention because everything good came through him tonight.” Paul Scholes said. “I don’t think you can underestimate Jesse Lingard’s part in Rooney’s goal. What an unbelievable cushioned pass.”
Manchester United go head-to-head with West Brom this weekend, and Jesse Lingard is expected to start that game. Click here to get a huge 5/1 on United to win the match on Saturday.
Jesse Lingard showed unbelievable heart and passion last night, and that is exactly what Manchester United need. He wasn’t afraid to have a go at the CSKA defenders and that has something that has been lacking recently. Perhaps the only criticism you can give the 22-year old is the fact that his finishing probably needs work, but that is something that can improve.
