‘He loves the League Cup,’ Man United fans react to forward’s performance vs Swansea City

Manchester United returned to winning ways after they secured a 2-0 triumph over Swansea City in the League Cup fourth-round tie on Tuesday night. Jesse Lingard was responsible for both goals for United after he impressed in the number 10 position where he has barely featured under Jose Mourinho.

Playing behind Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, the Englishman produced his best performance of the campaign as he found the scoresheet in either half against the Swans. The club graduate ghosted through space in the frontline to score the opener and he capped things off with a sublime header early in the second period.

Lingard has not quite found a position under the gaffer this season, but he looks an ideal player to provide competition to Henrikh Mkhitaryan in the support striker role. The Armenia international has, however, produced the goods over an extended period, and Lingard will have to perform at a similar level – when offered the chance in order to make himself a Premier League regular.

Here are the best tweets over Lingard’s performance….
