Manchester United fans lose patience with Jesse Lingard after fruitless form

Manchester United fans are not impressed with Jesse Lingard‘s performances, especially given the length of time he’s failed to improve in.

The versatile attacker is closing in on a year without any significant output, notching just a single assist and goal- less than the deeper, more holding midfielder in Scott McTominay.

Lingard is highly rated by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and fans have long struggled to understand why, with calls for Angel Gomes to replace him starting quite a while back.

Even during the pacy Englishman’s purple patch of form there was debate over whether he’s good enough to be a regular starter or a squad player.

Lingard’s issues can no longer be considered as poor form as it’s been far too long to be considered as a small sample of performances.

It appears his purple patch of form was an exception to his talent and isn’t the kind of performances he can put in on a regular basis.

There’s been plenty of talk of Manchester United needing an attacking midfielder and it’s justified given their struggles to break down stubborn opposition.

Lingard’s been so poor it’s even becoming difficult to argue that he should be kept on as a squad player with the likes of Andreas Pereira and Gomes offering more in terms of potential and actual performances.
