Jesse Lingard was whisked to Bridgewater Hospital in Manchester on Monday to assess the extent of the injury to his right knee after after suffering, what looks to be ligament damage, after going into a challenge with Swansea City’s Ashley Williams during the first half at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Lingard was a surprise inclusion into Louis van Gaal’s first Premier League squad at Old Trafford, linking in as wing back. His league debut only lasted 20-minutes until being replaced by new number 11, Adnan Januzaj.
As you can see from the picture above, Lingard’s right knee is heavily bandaged up, with a leg brace also.
Manchester United or representatives of Jesse Lingard have yet to release the severity of the injury, but no doubt it looks like he will be facing a lengthy time on the sidelines.
