English Premier League giants, Manchester United managed to close their 2019 trip with a sweet cut after the win over Burnley. Unfortunately, the opposite is actually noted Red Devils midfielder, Jesse Lingard. In fact, the England national team player did not score a goal or an assist in the Premier League this year.
As is known, Manchester United faced Burnley in the 20th matchday of the Premier League match last week (29/12). In the match, the Red Devils won with a landslide score of 2-0, thanks to goals from Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood. Meanwhile, Jesse Lingard himself also played in the party.
England National Team midfielder was revealed by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the 73rd minute. Unfortunately, he failed to make progress in the game and did not score goals or assists while on the field. Given the fact that the match against Burnley was the last match for Manchester United, it means that Lingard spent 2019 without scoring assists and goals in the Premier League.
Yes, the last time Jesse Lingard scored in the Premier League against Cardiff City on December 23, 2018. This British player scored two goals in Manchester United 5-1 victory over the hosts. Four days later on Boxing Day 2018, Jesse Lingard made two assists against Huddersfield.
Unfortunately, its performance seems to continue to decline since entering 2019 until now. Obviously this makes the player in the spotlight, especially when he was involved in controversy some time ago. However, Jesse Lingard must focus on his performance. He is now 27 years old, which means Lingard’s golden period is coming to an end.
Usually, a soccer player really feels the era of glory at the age of 26 to 27 years. However, 2019 was a bleak year for Lingard. He failed to score in 28 matches in the 2018/19 Premier League and this 2019/20 season. Obviously this situation makes the management of the Red Devils might consider the possibility of selling it.
Moreover, the winter transfer market will soon open in January 1, 2020.
