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." Oct 9 - 6:32 AM

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.

Jesse Lingard came on as a second half substitute and had one of the few solid chances in the dull draw.

There was a lot on the line and a lot of hype surrounding the Manchester Derby at Old Trafford. At the end of the day it ended up being a listless affair with barely a good chance to be found. City lined up with two hiding midfielders plus Yaya Toure in as defensive an alignment as they ever feature. Neither side enjoyed so much as a sustained run of pressure on the other as City moved back into first on goal difference and United ended the week in fourth.

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard has joined Derby on loan until the end of the season.

Lingard has not featured for United since he injured his knee on the opening day of the season against Swansea. The 22-year-old is now back to full fitness and hopes to play a key role at Derby, who are second in the Sky Bet Championship. Derby boss Steve McClaren, who also signed Tom Ince on loan from Hull earlier on deadline day, told Derby's website: "Jesse Lingard is an exciting talent and someone that we are looking forward to working with.

England youth international Jesse Lingard has been photographed leaving hospital after the midfielder suffered a knee injury during Saturdays’ loss to Swansea City.

Injury problems mount for Manchester United as Jesse Lingard looks set for an extended spell on the side-lines; the youngster was making his first competitive start for his club side in the season opener but lasted only 24 minutes as he overstretched to challenge Ashley Williams. Lingard limped away from Bridgewater Hospital in Manchester today on crutches with his knee fixed in a hinged brace; a support typically associated with ligament damage. Louis van Gaal could now be forced to quickly add to his current squad with potentially up to ten first team players out of next weekend’s clash against Sunderland.
