Jesse Lingard in line for Manchester United pay rise

Jesse Lingard in line for Manchester United pay rise

The 20-year-old England worldwide has been an integral part of Jose Mourinho's first team this season but has seen his playing time limited nevertheless.

The 20-year-old striker ended a goal drought with two goals in the 200th competitive fixture between Manchester United and Liverpool on Saturday afternoon, rising to the occasion in his first Premier League start for the Reds since Boxing Day.

Ian Wright believes Liverpool FC are having an incredible season under Jurgen Klopp.

Rashford's minutes have been limited since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January, but Mourinho insisted he was finding a balance between burning Rashford out and giving him enough experience.

One of the most anticipated matches of the year took place on Saturday and ended about how you'd expect. Personally, taking the confidence from this game into the next games is important.

"We want the supporters behind us, since I've been here they've been really good. But if you go to his numbers and how many matches he played with me last season and this, I would say probably he's in the top five players with most matches in the two seasons". It's good that you can be around him to have a laugh and reassure him that it's going to come good and that if he gets a chance he will perform and he has done that.

The youngster has only started twice in seven appearances in the Champions League, but could be called on for Tuesday night's crunch match against Sevilla.




Rashford will not be frustrated if his manager chooses otherwise, however, as he accepted his role under Jose Mourinho this season.

The Portuguese criticised De Boer, who had said on BT Sport that "it is a pity" Rashford plays under Mourinho.

He discovered that Rashford has actually featured more than any other player since Mourinho took over.

At least not since Cristiano Ronaldo left the club. Should Marcus Rashford start against Sevilla?

Eric Bailly's weird own goal gave Liverpool hope in the second half, but United held on for a first victory over their North West rivals since January, 2016.

The first goal against Liverpool was just another proof of this claim.
