Manchester United’s midfielder Jesse Lingard has not recorded a goal for the team since 14 matches and his goalless run has left Twitterverse unimpressed.
Lingard was unable to score for the Red Devils in the side’s last match against Wolves on Monday as well and he looked out of sorts throughout the match.
Several football fans took to Twitter and called the player ‘overrated’ and asked the team management to replace the player.
“Lingard is the most overrated player I’ve seen, some people act like he’s 19, The guys 26 ffs,” one fan wrote.
“I really don’t like criticising our own players..but Lingard was atrocious tonight,” another fan tweeted.
“I will even prefer Dalot in Lingard’s position. #MUFC,” one Twitter user commented.
“Lingard’s -12/10 going under the radar again whilst Pogba gets criticised for a penalty miss,” another Twitter user posted.
“Ole: The boys are ready, they are always alert and focused. Lingard: #WOLMUN,” one fan tweeted.
“We played better than last season. A freak goal and a penalty save cost us 2 points but the improvement is clear and obvious. The one liability is Lingard. He really needs to be doing more in final 3rd. #WOLMUN #mufc,” one Twitter user commented.
United and Wolves played out a 1-1 draw at the Molineux Stadium in the ongoing Premier League on Monday.
United dominated the bulk of ball possession and their antics with the ball paid a dividend for them as Anthony Martial scored for them in the 27th minute, giving United a 1-0 lead.
