Manchester United’s start to the new campaign got off to a thrilling start as they claimed all three points against Chelsea in dominating fashion.
They were superb going forward as they put four unanswered goals past the Blues to get off the mark with a superb win.
Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Dan James all got on the scoresheet but despite an impressive victory, there was still room for negativity.
Jesse Lingard appeared to be berated by supporters on Twitter for his display as he was targeted on social media.
One fan told him to improve whilst another said that he needed to stay out of the starting XI. A further individual stated that he was terrible, suggesting United wouldn’t win anything with him in the team.
The 26-year-old was also branded as bang average by one supporter as they claimed he was running around like a headless chicken.
Lingard played 86 minutes against Chelsea on Sunday, finishing the game with a pass success rate of 88.5%, per WhoScored. He managed one key pass and three dribbles too.
Here’s how United fans responded to his showing at the weekend.

You still bang average, just riding the wave. Didnt make any clinical pass at all. Just running around like a headless chicken. Off the ball movements merchant

You need to stay out of the starting 11. You tried tho

Perriera and lingard absolutely awful, non existent. Still find it hard to believe we didn’t get a CM in! Score line was generous I agree, they hit the woodwork twice sure, but our attack is lethal! Never the less we’ll take the result no doubt, wolves away next ?

We’ll never win anything with Lingard and Pereira. They have been terrible.

Lingard was poor

But it could have been much much better.
Besides the majestic pass for Rashford’s second goal, Pogba had a poor game. By his standard.
Am also still not convinced with McTominay and Lingard. They just dont do enough.
