Manchester United took a massive leap towards securing second place with a 2-1 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford.
Chelsea took the lead through in-form Brazilian attacker Willian, who started and ended a good counter-attack by smashing the ball beyond David de Gea. That lead didn't last long though as United drew level through Romelu Lukaku, putting a dent in his reputation for failing to score in big games. He got ahead of Marcos Alonso to pick up Martial's pass to convert. Lukaka almost scored an audacious volley to grab the lead for United but Courtois tipped it away. However a cross from the Belgian striker with a quarter of an hour to go was met by Lingard, who headed past Courtois to complete United's comeback and win the tie. United are back in second and the pressure is back on Antonio Conte again to ensure Chelsea qualify for the Champions League next season. Feb 25 - 11:31 AM

Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku scored in the final 10 minutes at Old Trafford to secure a 2-0 win over Derby County in the FA Cup Third Round on Friday evening.

José Mourinho made five changes from the side which beat Everton on New Year's Day but the starting XI was still strong and duly dominated the Championship outfit. Marcus Rashford should have scored a brace but only managed to hit the post once in each half. His first-half header created by a Mkhitaryan cross was a particularly poor miss. As for the Armenian, aside from that moment he provided little and was hooked at half-time with Lukaku emerging as his replacement. Pogba and Mata both forced good saves from Derby 'keeper Scott Carson whilst Lawrence forced a save out of Romero with The Rams' best effort. However, with minutes of normal time left Jesse Lingard fired home with another moment of magic from range range and Lukaku took advantage of the space offered on the counter to add gloss to the scoreline, finishing calmly. United travel to Dubai for a mid-season break after a hectic festive schedule.

Two second half goals from Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard gave Manchester United all three points at Everton.

Sam Allardyce suffered his second consecutive league loss as Everton manager in the face of a good performance by Man Utd. In the first half United pushed forward but yet again lacked a clinical edge, attempting too many shots from distance and failing to give a good final ball. Their opponents were no better. Juan Mata hit the bar after the interval before United took the lead. Mata and Pogba combined well before the latter set up Martial who finished well. Pogba's assist was duly deserved in such a fine performance where he proved a threat on Pickford's goal. He again assisted Lingard when they doubled the lead but his role was minor as Lingard's effort was successful because of stunning individual play. United's confidence will have been boosted by such a good performance and for once, they have gained points on Man City in first.

Jesse Lingard did not make the starting XI, but continued his hot play coming on as a 2nd half substitute and personally erasing Manchester United's two goal deficit to eke out a 2-2 draw with Burnley.

This was a frustrating affair for United, who dominated the stat sheet, including over 70% of the possession and besting Burnley in shots by a ridiculous 23-3. Yet, it was the Clarets who made the most of their chances, turning two of those three shots into first half goals to give them a two goal advantage and the reputation of a solid defense poised to protect their lead. Lingard, who was a surprise non-starter in this one, came on to begin the second half and it was just what the doctor ordered. In the 53rd minute, he scored on the back heel after being fed the ball by Ashley Young. It looked as though Burnley might stave off the comeback, but Lingard bagged a brace in stoppage time. Once again, Ashley Young was involved as his shot bounced off the leg of a Burnley defender and Lingard quickly pounced with a swift volley. It is a positive end to the game but still disheartening as Manchester City have a chance widen the gap at the top even more.

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.

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.
