Jesse Lingard's second brace of the week was enough to give 10-man Manchester United a 3-1 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates on Saturday.
Antonio Valencia pounced on an error from Laurent Koscielny to hammer the opener, before Lingard poked home the second after a well-linked sequence with Lukaku and Martial. The second-half picked up where the end-to-end opening 45 minutes left off as Alexandre Lacazette thumped one back for Arsenal on 48 minutes. Lingard then popped up again with his fourth goal of the week to restore the lead after a powerful move by Pogba. United were reduced to 10 men soon after when the Frenchman was sent off for a dangerous challenge on Hector Bellerin, but the ever-present David de Gea—who made a stunning 14 saves—held firm to secure all three points. United sit within five points of rivals City at the moment, but will be without Pogba for next Sunday's Manchester derby. Dec 2 - 3:02 PM

Jesse Lingard has emerged as an early doubt for the clash with Chelsea after suffering a back injury in the Champions League.

The United winger was forced off at half-time during the unconvincing 2-0 win over Benfica on Tuesday, although his potential absence, won’t be the cause of any great concern. Lingard has mustered only 217 Premier League minutes this term, including just one start [the 2-1 defeat Huddersfield], as he struggles to force his way into the first-team reckoning. Following the lacklustre victory, which leaves United on the verge of qualifying for the knockout phase, Mourinho confirmed his side came through without any "significant injuries" although Lingard felt "something" in his back but "hopefully nothing important." Marcus Rashford, Ashley Young, Ander Herrera and Henrikh Mkhitaryan all began last night’s game on the bench suggesting the quartet could be set to start against the current Premier League Champions this weekend.

Manchester United cruised past Swansea City 2-0 in the Carabao Cup 4th Round thanks to two goals from Jesse Lingard.

Lingard started in a central attacking role behind United's youthful pair Martial and Rashford, benefiting hugely from the freedom in the role. United showed little of what Mourinho dubbed a "poor attitude" which saw them lose to Huddersfield at the weekend. Spurred on by his words, he ended the evening praising his side's mindset. A smart Rashford backheel teed up Lingard for his first which he put into Nordfeldt's bottom corner. The second was also impressive, with Tuanzebe advancing out of defence with the ball and spreading to Darmian, whose cross found the onrushing Lingard's head. McTominay was handed his first start for the Red Devils in a rotated XI whilst Paul Clement had made 8 changes to the side which lost to Leicester at the weekend.

Luke Shaw has been impressed with United during their 2017 tour, especially in attack.

Despite being sidelined until mid-September, Jose Mourinho felt it was important to keep Shaw involved with the group as he continues his recovery from a foot ligament injury. United are unbeaten in their 4-games to date, scoring ten goals in the process: "You look at the pace and skill we have up top and the finishing ability and it’s frightening," the full-back told MUTV before singling out Lingard for special praise. "Jesse is my standout player so far on this tour. He’s everywhere and always willing to set up the play and chip in with a goal or an assist. Hopefully all the boys can carry on doing their thing." Romelu Lukaku has settled quickly following his arrival from Everton, a deal which could be worth in excess of £90 million, while Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have been in great form.

Manchester United will need to spend £44 million ($56m) to entice Inter Milan to sell Ivan Perisic.

Sky Italia report that United have seen an initial £36m approach and a further improved offer rebuffed already in their pursuit of the 29 year old Croatian. Inter's new boss, Luciano Spalletti, wants to keep him at the club if United fail to meet the club's valuation. Perisic, who has three years to run on his current contract, scored 10 times and assisted a further 6 in Serie A this term as his team struggled to a 7th place finish. The Croat is a relatively pacy winger who works hard for the team but he is often maligned for his profligacy in the final third.

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard has signed a new contract with the club.

The deal will keep him at Old Trafford until the end of the 2020/21 season, and an option is in the contract for the club to extend the deal by a further year. 24 year old Lingard came through United's academy, making his debut against Swansea on the opening day of the 2014/15 season. He has since made 70 appearances, scoring 11 goals. Manager Jose Mourinho said: "Jesse has been with the club since the age of seven. He has good intelligence which, when combined with his energy and ability, makes for a player with a great future ahead of him. Jesse is a popular member of the squad and I am delighted he has signed a new contract."

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.

The week keeps getting better for Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard, who earned his first appearance for the England team.

Lingard's former U21 manager Gareth Southgate gave the 23-year-old the start in a 2-0 win against Malta in a World Cup qualifier just days after earning his first call-up into the senior team. "Jesse had an outstanding debut, he really linked the play well and looked a real threat," Southgate said in his post-game comments. That’s why we wanted to give him the start – he’s got a real strong mentality, he’s an exciting young player and the stage was made for him really. He’s enjoyed Wembley – he’s scored twice here in the past for Manchester United and he had a very good game."

Jesse Lingard could be available for Jose Mourinho if necessary but it seems unlikely that he will feature in Week 2 with others ahead of him in the pecking order.

With Anthony Martial, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata having started and played well in Week 1 to the tune of two goals and two assists between the three of them and Henrikh Mkhitaryan waiting in the wings, Lingard looks more likely to be a League Cup player this season than a Premier League starter. The youngster played reasonably well last season but isn't the sort of star performer that will win Manchester United a title. His future probably lies away from Old Trafford if he wants to be a regular starter. If he stays, he will likely have to content himself with spot duty.

Ten man Manchester United struck late in stoppage time through Jesse Lingard to take the FA Cup over Crystal Palace 2-1.

It was Palace who took the lead with substitute Jason Puncheon scoring the first goal of the match. United answered almost immediately through Juan Mata. The score stood at 1-1 through regulation time and 20 minutes of extra time before Lingard capped his first season as a regular contributor with a fantastic goal to claim a trophy for the United trophy case. Both sides could have scored more with Palace denied a couple of opportunities by questionable officiating while United hit the post twice.

Jesse Lingard's ascendancy may have been somewhat accidental this season but he has taken the opportunity and continues to produce results.

The Manchester United midfielder has now scored in consecutive matches and has been part of what has at least been a mini-revival of United's attacking play featuring Lingard and Martial playing wide, Juan Mata playing centrally behind Wayne Rooney. Rooney's revival has been well documented but it has been the speed and skill of Martial and Lingard and the creativity of Mata that have created opportunity for Rooney and put some sting in the Red Devil attack. Lingard won't keep scoring a goal a match but continue to look for contributions from him.

Jesse Lingard looks likely to make it an entire month on the shelf after the report that his return for Week 20 against Swansea is doubtful.

Manchester United continue to struggle mightily to find a spark in the attack. Jesse Lingard has been a pleasant surprise when he has featured so his enforced absence for a fourth consecutive week will hurt United's chances of rebounding against Swansea. The upside for fantasy managers is that Louis Van Gaal's options are fairly limited due to injury so there shouldn't be too much selection drama to sweat through in a match where United should get some chances.

Jesse Lingard will miss the visit of Norwich City to Old Trafford in Week 17 with a hamstring issue he picked up last week in the loss to Bournemouth.

With Ander Herrera and Wayne Rooney returning, the loss of Lingard won't be a tragedy for United. Lingard has been a nice story so far this season but he hasn't been so good that he isn't replaceable. Between Memphis, Herrera, Juan Mata, Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial there will be numbers for four starters and one to come off the bench.

Jesse Lingard piled the pressure on Louis van Gaal after the Manchester United winger limped off during Saturdays’ defeat at The Vitality.

Lingard suffered a suspected hamstring injury – his second within the space of three weeks – to cap a truly miserable seven days. Fortunate to pick up a point at home to West Ham, United then crashed out of the Champions League before losing against AFC Bournemouth last weekend. In the process – Chris Smalling and Matteo Darmian were both added to the treatment room while Morgan Schneiderlin struggles with a hip complaint and Ashley Young ‘feels he is not fit enough.’ Bastian Schweinsteiger has been handed a three match ban by the FA for violent conduct and all of a sudden it looks like the wheels are beginning to come off. At least the sight of Phil Jones during the dying moments on Saturday will be a welcome boost heading into a heavy fixture period.

Jesse Lingard helped Manchester United get a 2-0 win over West Brom today.

Lingard scored Manchester's first goal in a predictably low scoring match against West Brom. It was a tough match to watch, as both teams defended well and shots were very hard to come by. Juan Mata made it 2-0 late in the match from the penalty spot to ensure the three points, and Manchester United now find themselves in fourth place. They've been incredible on defense and as long as they keep that up, they'll be in the title race this season.
