Manchester United may have beaten West Brom 2-0 on Saturday but the game undoubtedly turned on the opener from Jesse Lingard.
The Baggies played defensively for much of the
encounter and Louis van Gaal’s side had to work hard to break Tony Pulis’ team down.
Once again, Manchester United youngster Jesse
Lingard proved the difference, having once again
been started in the first team.
In midweek, Lingard had set up Wayne Rooney for
the winner against CSKA Moscow and the academy
product kept out the likes of Memphis Depay for the
clash against West Brom.
After the West Brom win, Lingard posted on
Instagram and explained his goal celebration with
Lingard was acting out a moment from the famous
American football film Any Given Sunday and seems
to be a huge fan of Willie Beamen!
Manchester United are now a point behind Premier
League leaders Manchester City, having played one game more.
Proud to get my 1st goal for the club, most
importantly we got the 3 points. The celebration was
from the film any given sunday. STEAMIN WILLIE
