Manchester United fans were delighted with Jesse Lingard‘s performance against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon at Old Trafford.
The Englishman has been in brilliant form recently and many went as far to say that he was the best player on the pitch against Tony Pulis’ men.
He continuously got the ball foward, linked up play and was able to showcase his brilliant movement on and off the ball, which many fans noticed.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance.

Lingard and Fellaini are the only ones who look like they want to win.

It’s not often that fans have labelled Lingard as one of the best players on the pitch, as he’s often been unfairly criticised even when he has performed well, but against West Brom he proved he’s still a brilliant squad player.
With many first-team players currently injured, including Juan Mata, who could be ruled out for the rest of the season, the Englishman could be set for a very important role as Mourinho relies on him to produce the goods.
