David de Gea and Jesse Lingard have been named in the latest BBC Team of the Week following their top individual displays vs West Ham.
Manchester United bounced back from midweek disappointment, handing West Ham United their first loss of the season yesterday afternoon.
Credit where it’s due, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men came out and got the job done. It was always going to be a difficult game but our guys dug in and fought for everything. In the end, it was just about enough to win all three points.
I actually thought United were very hard done by in regards to the officials, too. We could have had at least one, probably two penalties on the day but Cristiano Ronaldo and company were not going to let that stop them.
For their individual outings, a key duo were named in the BBC’s latest Team of the Week.

David de Gea’s inclusion was an absolute no-brainer. The superstar Spaniard had an excellent game – and capped off a top outing with his first penalty save in five years. You could see just how happy the whole squad was for United’s number one, as they all ran over to him at full-time.
Second, we have Jesse Lingard. He’s always had the ability to produce something out of nothing – and it was an outrageous finish on his part in the dying embers of the game. Whether or not he should’ve been included in this team is another matter entirely – as he was a fairly late substitute, but we’re not complaining!
What I loved most about the game was that the squad looked really tight-knit and willing to fight for each other. The harmony in that dressing room is there for all to see and that’s key to any title charge.
