Man United midfielder envies Lingard’s shooting prowess

Date published: Wednesday 3rd January 2018 8:46

Ander Herrera has encouraged Manchester United team-mate Jesse Lingard to adopt a shoot-on-sight policy while his purple patch continues.

England international Lingard reached double figures for the season by crashing home his seventh goal in nine games to cap a 2-0 victory over Everton on New Year’s Day.

Among United’s players only Romelu Lukaku has scored more times this term than Lingard, who managed just a single goal in the Premier League last campaign but has flourished over the past five weeks.

His unstoppable attempt against the Toffees, which was blasted beyond Jordan Pickford, was indicative of a man brimming with confidence and colleague Herrera wants Lingard to carry on trying his luck.

“It’s fantastic – when you are like that he has to keep trying to shoot, shoot, shoot,” the Spaniard said.

“I am not in that moment! I shot three times and I didn’t score but I will keep looking for that moment.

“Jesse has it now. He has to keep trying to shoot but the movements he does for the team are also amazing.

“He’s very quick at the moment as well. No one can catch him. We are happy for him.

“He wants to improve, he wants to be a fantastic player. You can see in every training session and he’s showing it in the games.”
