Manchester United fans react to Jesse Lingard’s performance against Spain

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United fans were delighted with Jesse Lingard‘s performance against Spain on Tuesday evening.

He hasn’t had the best of starts this season at Old Trafford under Jose Mourinho but has proven he has plenty to offer for club and country.

The Englishman’s versatility and pace were hailed by supporters after he worked to cement his place in Gareth Southgate’s starting XI.

Here’s what some fans had to say about his showing on social media.

Over the course of the night, Lingard started off on the right, swapped with Raheem Sterling on the left flank and then went into the hole after Adam Lallana was forced off, and he gave 100 percent in each position he featured in.

He was the only Man United star to make an impact on the side after Wayne Rooney was withdrawn from the squad, Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw were left at home due to an injury while Marcus Rashford was on the bench for a majority of the game.

He offered a continuos pace and a desire to go forward, and although there was no repeat of his previous Wembley showings as he hit the post later on in the game, Lingard will be proud of his overall performance.
