Jesse Lingard was fantastic for Manchester United in their 2-0 win over West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
The 22-year-old proved to be the difference with a goal in the second half that changed the game completely in Man United’s favour as it forced West Brom to come out of their defensive shape, and it ultimately led to Anthony Martial‘s breakaway goal at the end to seal a comfortable victory.
Lingard also had a big influence in United’s win over CSKA Moscow during the week and Louis van Gaal will be delighted with how he got on in the Premier League. The fan certainly were having seen him score his first goal in front of the Stretford End:
Always knew Jese Lingard would shine for us. Absolutely magnificent from him tonight.

Great to see Jesse Lingard get his first MUFC. Been really bright in these last few games. England call up next target?

Lingard is such an impressive player, always looking to create chances and do something positive with the ball. Our only outlet.

Van Gaal's can be credited for using youth. Great to see Lingard score for United!

It sounds #TopRed (ish) but seeing Lingard prosper is fantastic man. Manchester boy making his dream become reality. No better narrative.

Lingard, energy, so positive, willing to take on a man, trying to create, not always end product, but he's willing. #MUFC

The direct play by Lingard is amazing.

Lingard is a born and bred Red. He came through the academy and earned his place in the first-team. Now, he’s reaping the rewards of the richly deserved spotlight. Well done Jesse.
