Jesse Lingard has admitted that he’s never had a better season than his current campaign at Manchester United.
The England international had a fantastic week going into Saturday afternoon’s comfortable 2-0 Premier League win against Swansea City at Old Trafford.
Lingard scored his first goal for England, having netted 13 times this season for Man United, the most ever in his career at the club.
His movement was vital in both goals for United on Saturday, as January signing Alexis Sanchez struck home for the first time since early February.
“It’s been a great, positive week,” the 25-year-old told Sky Sports News of his time with England on international duty in the most recent break.
“This season has been my best season, I don’t know what to put it down to,” Lingard continued.
“The goals obviously help, something has clicked this season. I’ve got to carry on now until the end and see what happens in the summer.
“I’ve got the get to the end of the season, do well for my club and perform for Manchester United.”
It now looks impossible for Lingard not to make Gareth Southgate’s squad for this summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia.
His club form this season has been matched by some excellent international moments. His movement, pace and goalscoring knack has made him one of the most important players in Jose Mourinho’s side.
It’s his best season by far, mainly due to that goalscoring ability that has seen him win or save points against Arsenal, Burnley, West Brom and Chelsea.
