Manchester United lost their first Premier League match of the season after going down 2-1 Crytal Palace at Old Trafford. It was the second time the Red Devils had dropped points in the space of a week having drawn 1-1 with Wolves just 5 days earlier.
The performance in the loss to Palace was disappointing especially from winger Jesse Lingard. The Manchester United academy graduate has not registered a goal nor an assist despite playing 13Premier League matches in 2019.
Manchester United fans are growing increasingly discontent with his performances and were quick to compare him with summer target Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon who registered 3 assists in a single match over the weekend as Lisbon was playing Portimonense in the Portuguese top-flight league.
Interestingly, the club decided not to sanction a deal for the Portuguese midfielder due to concerns over his final ball. The Old Trafford faithful are furious with Lingard and are finding it hard to hide their frustrations…
