The first goal of the season was scored by Jesse Lingard on Wednesday night. It netted the equalizer in a draw of 2-2 with Arsenal. Lingard had been an important player associated with the success of Manchester United in the last season by scoring 8 goals and have tallied 5 assists.
Lingard’s form didn’t go unnoticed. As a matter of fact, he had been rewarded with a significant role in the England squad of Gareth Southgate over the summer. The attacker scored 6-1 out of Panama in England. His energy was the key reason; the nation had been able to reach the semi-finals. After he sustained a groin injury, Lingard had been ruled out during the beginning of the present campaign for almost a month.
During the time when United Struggled get inspiration and needed a flair for unlocking the games in the deadlock, the characteristic possessed by Lingard had been sidelined. Now back with complete fitness, the favorite of the fans promises that he is going to give Jose Mourinho’s team a boost which they need desperately.
Talking about the Arsenal game, Lingard had admitted that World Cup had limited his involved with Man United during the start of the season. He also said that they didn’t get much rest in summer after the World Cup. Hence, coming back was always going to some niggles here and there.
It reached a point where it wasn’t possible for him to carry one. That broke him and he is raring to go at present. To turn to the United’s season around fighting spirit has to be the key.
