Leading up to the crunch clash against Leicester City, Jesse Lingard was the player who was expected to get onto the scoreboard for Manchester United.

But score he did, cue wild celebrations in the 97th minute. Kasper Schmeichel was the man at fault as he failed to clear the ball in time. Lingard ensured he paid for it dearly to end any hopes of a Leicester comeback.

The 27-year-old has had a difficult season in which he has struggled both on and off the pitch. He has played sparingly since the arrival of Bruno Fernandes and could be on his way out this summer.

Having come through the United academy, Lingard has made 205 appearances for the club. During this time, he has scored 32 goals and 20 assists.

It remains to be seen if he has played his last Premier League game for the club. If so, he has has a final few minutes to remember.

It was not, however, the same for a United fan who placed a bet on Lingard failing to bag a goal or assist throughout the whole 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

He was denied at the death as the Englishman broke Leicester’s hearts and also that of one of our own. However, what matters is that we are back in the Champions League and it was one of our own that ensured we did so.
