Lingard delighted getting on Manchester United scoresheet

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard was delighted to get on the scoresheet in victory over Stoke City.

The 23-year-old stooped to head home from close range following a cross from Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, before a stunning team goal finished by Anthony Martial and a tap-in from Wayne Rooney completed a comfortable victory for the Reds.

“We started very brightly, and as soon as we got the first goal, we were confident of getting a second and third.”

“We needed to score goals, attack and entertain the crowd really.”

“When we do that, we make the game easy for ourselves, so I think we should carry that on now.”

The winger also had praise for his fellow scorers, telling MUTV: “If we keep feeding the ball to Anthony Martial, he can make things happen.

“We knew from his goal against Liverpool what he could bring to the team, that pace, that power, and he’s got a great goal in him.”

As for his captain Rooney, Lingard added: “He’s always going to score goals, and he leads the team by example.”

“Seven goals in seven matches is a great record and hopefully now he can get eight in eight.”
