We can now see so why Jesse Lingard must be bought this summer.
His absence from the Hammers side at old Trafford tonight was the major contribution to our defeat assuming that you ignore the negative tactics and selected starting 11.
Lingard carries the ball so well – drives the team forward, is a quality Premier League player, scores goals a and former international.
Instead when Said Benrahma who eventually came on in a bid to make things happen in his absence – and why so late anyway – there was little comparison to be made between the two of them.
We paid £30 million for the former Brentford player and Manchester United apparently want £20 million for Lingard so to use the vernacular: “What’s that all about?
I have no doubt that with Jesse returning for the next three games we are gonna have an offensive approach which will continue to see us battling at the top of the League.
That he has created such an impression so quickly and that he claims to love being here it’s a deal which has to happen.
And tonight showed precisely why!
