‘He offers nothing’, ‘Tragic’, these Man United fans slam 27-year-old after Arsenal defeat

A section of Manchester United fans have slammed the performance of Jesse Lingard following the club’s disappointing 2-0 defeat to Arsenal in the Premier League on New Year’s Day.

The Red Devils went into the game with the chance to win a third-straight league game on the bounce and they were certainly favourites with the Gunners managing just one victory from the past 12 top-flight matches.

However, they were thoroughly dominated by the north London side in the opening half and could have easily conceded more than two goals before the half-time whistle.

After the interval, United were able to have more possession off the ball but that came to no avail with the Gunners defence comfortably dealing with the threat for the entire half.

It was a game to forget for nearly the entire team but the fans have particularly criticised Lingard, who failed to make any impact from the number 10 position against the Gunners.

Prior to the game, Lingard had a good record against his opponents with four goals from six meetings but he was very poor at the Emirates, where he managed just one shot which was blocked.

As such, there has been plenty of frustration among the fans over his performance and some of them have taken to Twitter to state that he should not be anywhere near the starting lineup.

Twitter Reactions:

Lingard went through the entire 2019 without a goal or an assist in the Premier League and he has struggled once again in the New Year with another below-par performance from an attacking midfield role.

United are certainly missing the presence of a creative midfielder, who can make the difference in the final third and it remains to be seen whether they are able to pursue a new recruit during the transfer window.
