Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes have hailed Jesse Lingard’s performance in his first outing for West Ham United, Mirror.
The Englishman left the Red Devils on loan to join the Hammers and scored a brace in his debut against Aston Villa in their 3-1 win at Villa Park.
The 28-year-old has been frozen out of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad and a move out of Old Trafford was necessary to save his England career.
Lingard’s brace did not go unnoticed by his former teammates after saying “Perfect Start 2 Goals 3 Points” on his Instagram.
Marcus Rashford replied:
Jadon Sancho added:
Bruno Fernandes posted:
Diogo Dalot replied:
Lingard posted a man-of-the-match performance and is aiming for plenty more game time at the club.
He was quoted by Mirror:
“I started tonight, scored two goals and got three points. I was smiling before the game and during, I just enjoy playing football.
“It has been a long time, I have come here to get game time and scored two goals but like I said, three points is the most important.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Marcus Rashford has stated that Man United will not be distracted by the current form of their Premier League rivals Man City and Liverpool in the title race, Mirror.
The Red Devils were ruthless against Southampton at Old Trafford as they put nine goals past the Saint Mary’s based outfit.
United now have 44 points, going level with league leaders Man City but their goal difference has risen to +19, the same as Liverpool and just five behind their city rivals.
