Michael Owen Makes Jesse Lingard Demand After Late Villarreal win

Jesse Lingard made yet another big difference as United secured a 2-1 win over European rivals Villarreal. United went down some minutes into the second half but found their way back courtesy of Alex Telles volley. The match-winning goal was scored by Ronaldo with a little help from Jesse Lingard.

Jesse's contribution has gone unnoticed and some United fans want him included in the regular starting eleven.

Even football pundit Micahel Owen echoed the sentiments of the fans in the post-match analysis.

"I thought the subs were going to bring so much energy, Cavani, Jesse Lingard," he said. "I’m surprised Jesse Lingard wasn’t the first sub if I’m honest to only give him six minutes plus injury time wow, he’s absolutely flying at the moment.

"I thought Cristiano Ronaldo was going to take a step back and bring it down on his chest, he heads it down to Jesse and gets it back and the rest is history what a finish."
