Jesse Lingard’s stinking pass stats from disastrous cameo in Manchester United’s dismal defeat to Young Boys

Posted by

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard had an absolute stinker of a cameo in their defeat to Young Boys on Tuesday evening.

Lingard was brought on for Cristiano Ronaldo in the 72nd minute of Man United’s clash with Young Boys at the Wankdorf Stadium on Tuesday night.

While the England international had a positive impact as a substitute against Newcastle United at the weekend, his impact in Man United’s Champions League opener was a disastrous one.

Lingard played a lazy pass back to goalkeeper David De Gea in the 95th minute of last night’s game, with Theoson Siebatcheu being quickest to react and finding the back of the net.

That was, by some distance, Lingard’s most impactful contribution of his cameo. The Sun use data from Opta to piece together his full pass map from his time on the field of play.

Lingard stuck around at Man United beyond the summer transfer window in order to compete for minutes in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting eleven.

While one bad pass shouldn’t be held against him indefinitely, it is a major blow to his hopes of winning his manager over.
