Manchester United boosted their chances of finishing in the English Premier League top four on Sunday after an excellent comeback win against Chelsea at Old Trafford.
After falling behind in the match thanks to Willian’s opener, Jose Mourinho’s side had to dig deep to secure the three points and did just that, first equalising through Romelu Lukaku, who then crossed for Jesse Lingard to head home the winner in the second half.
Lingard, who was tasked with coming off the bench and making an impact, was excellent during his time on the pitch, proving again to supporters and to Mourinho that he is one of the club’s most important players.

He’s got a knack for scoring huge, important goals and that makes him a very valuable asset indeed, even if he needs to work on his consistency.
Fans were all in agreement that his impact was excellent, with some now saying he has earned his spot in Mourinho’s starting line-up once again.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…
Lingard is so good. So underrated. #mufc

Lingard needs to start in atleast main matches like this one, which can decide the top 4 in the table. Lingard has proved himself time and time again and for the sake of his confidence. #MUNCHE #ManchesterUnited #MUFC
