Revealed: Majority of Man United fans want Lingard to keep his place vs Arsenal

Attacking midfield has been something of a problem position for Jose Mourinho this season. While the Portuguese has some decent options to call upon to link his engine room with the attack, Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have both struggled for form – notching up just two goals and six assists (five of which came before the end of August) in the Premier League.

Mourinho’s been very open with his criticism of both players and perhaps most tellingly of how disappointed he is, Jesse Lingard got the nod to start instead against Watford on Tuesday evening.

The England international, who has represented his country on eight occasions, certainly took his chance to impress, grabbing a goal and an assist – including a last-minute individual effort that started in his own half – in a 4-2 win at Vicarage Road.

Accordingly, we asked United fans earlier this week whether the 5 foot 9 midfielder should keep his place for the Premier League clash with Arsenal on Saturday and according to our poll, the majority believe he should.
