Manchester United's 24 year old midfielder Jesse Lingard scored United's second as they overcame Southampton 3-2 in a thrilling EFL Cup final.
On Sunday, he became only the third player to score in a League Cup final, FA Cup final and Community shield at the hallowed Wembley Stadium which highlights his big game pedigree in spite of his "class clown" reputation. However, the fact that his three consecutive Wembley goals constitute 30% of all his goals in red perhaps explains why people doubt him. However, it's unfair to compare Lingard to Mkhitaryan, who he replaced in the starting line-up, as the Englishman's role in the team is far more defensive than the Armenian or teammate Juan Mata. Mourinho did not deploy him in the final just to attack, he also pressed Oriol Romeu continuously, earning himself a caution and final warning but ultimately the ploy worked well. His manager was clearly satisfied, as he sacrificed Juan Mata to facilitate a half-time tactical switch as opposed to Lingard. Feb 28 - 6:41 AM
