‘Absolute class’, ‘He is magic’, Man Utd fans react to attacker’s display vs Swansea City

Lingard Man Utd

Manchester United supporters were pleased with Jesse Lingard’s over performance against Swansea City on Saturday. The England international came off a fine spell with the Three Lions during the break, and his form was evident during the league meeting versus the Swans.

Lingard could not add to the scoresheet in terms of a goal or an assist, but his link-up play, in particular, was impressive during the first-half, where he indirectly contributed towards Alexis Sanchez’s goal, which saw United go 2-0 up within 20 minutes.


Lingard did not start the season brilliantly as he found himself behind the likes of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Juan Mata and the departed-Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the pecking order. However, the attacker has since transformed himself as the regular in the number 10 role, and he happens to command a spot irrespective of Alexis Sanchez’s arrival at the club.

The form is likely to affect the progress of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, who were warming the bench against Swansea, but a couple of similar performances from Lingard may see him become irreplaceable under Mourinho just like Romelu Lukaku.
