Jesse Lingard: This is what Manchester United need to immediately improve

by Tanveer Arayan

Jesse Lingard admits poor finishing from players is seriously costing Manchester United this season.

Jose Mourinho’s side have failed to win any of their last four Premier League matches at Old Trafford, following draws against Stoke City, Burnley, Arsenal and West Ham.

In their last four draws, Man United have had 91 shots on target but have failed to efficiently convert their chances with only three goals.

Speaking after the game, Lingard is hoping to bounce back against West Ham on Wednesday.

“We’re playing really well but we keep drawing. The performances are there — it’s just (a matter of) putting the ball in the back of the net,” he said.

“It’s four draws in a row with numerous chances — the luck’s not there at the moment. But we have to concentrate on the game on Wednesday now.

“We’ve got high standards this season and for every competition we’re in, our aim is to win.

“So it’s good we have another game so quickly and we want to bounce back against West Ham.”

United have been playing well, but if they’re not scoring goals and winning goals, the pressure will continue to mount on Mourinho and his squad.

West Ham will be back at Old Trafford when the sides meet in the EFL Cup quarter-final on Wednesday and Mourinho will be hoping to change his squad’s luck.
