Jesse Lingard reveals how he’s helping keep new Man United star Marcus Rashford grounded

Lingard’s progression has not been as dramatic his team-mate’s, but now looks like an established first-team regular.

After loan spells at Leicester and Birmingham, the Warrington-born midfielder made his debut in boss Van Gaal’s first Premier League game in 2014 before it was cut short by a first-half injury.

That was followed by another loan spell, at Derby, and he added: “I knew when I came back from Derby that this was pretty much a make or break season for me.

“I had to wait three months to come on against Everton and have played ever since.

“Sir Alex Ferguson made a statement about me coming good at 23 and it has obviously happened.”
