Manchester United: Fans want Lingard gone

Manchester United: Fans want Lingard gone

Jesse Lingard is struggling for form at the minute, there’s no denying that.

The England international has averaged just 0.8 key passes, 1 dribble and 0.5 shots on goal per game so far this season, via WhoScored.

The 26-year-old has not been involved in a single goal for United since December 2018, making his continued inclusion in the starting line-up at Old Trafford a somewhat confusing one.

Lingard was finally dropped from the team against Southampton, with Juan Mata taking his place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting XI at St Mary’s. He was introduced as a second-half substitute on the south coast, however, but couldn’t help his side gain all three points after Jannik Vestergaard’s 58th-minute header rescued a draw for the hosts.

The midfielder’s recent performances have sparked debate among United supporters on Twitter, with @UnitedStandMUFC posing this question to its 173,000-strong follower base: “Is Lingard a first-team starter, a bench player, or should the club sell him?”

The results speak for themselves…
