Lingard came through with a stunning late goal to help Man United to a hard fought victory before De Gea made an awesome penalty save
United extend their Premier League victories with a superb win against David Moyes’ men as Jesse Lingard helped to torment his former side.
Having spent last season on loan to West Ham United, Jesse’s goal today reassured the Hammers of the talent he has and more reason why they have been fighting hard to make his loan permanent.
Ronaldo provided the first goal for United in response to first blow from West Ham United who couldn’t maintain their lead for too long.
Many fans of course have had grudges for Jesse Lingard who mistakenly aided Young Boys’ victory during United’s Tuesday encounter during the UCL Clash.
Netting the last goal of the game today helped serve as a redemption for the young talented ace who is keen to remain at United and fight for a shirt.
After netting his superb screamer, all could see Ronaldo tightly holding the 28-year-old in celebration of joy as he was instrumental to help materialize United’s win today.
Following the final whistle, Ronaldo was quizzed about the English man; “It was a great goal for the club and him personally,” Ronaldo said.
“These types of goals in a time like this means a lot for us and every single player who faced what Jesse faced.
“He is top talent and has shown once again that he can play here. I am happy he scored the goal today in a brilliant way also.”
Ole Solskjaer was another person filled with utmost joy after seeing his substitution pay off this time around as bringing on Jesse and Sancho helped United land the victory.
“So happy for Jesse, he had a tough evening on Tuesday, he knuckled down, he’s a positive lad, so happy for him. A good turn by Jesse, good finish.”
United will battle same side on Wednesday for FA Cup.
