Lingard, 22, has been thrust into the limelight this season and has taken his chance to shine amid plenty of attacking problems for Louis van Gaal’s side.

He set up Wayne Rooney’s goal against CSKA Moscow last week, then scored a superbly placed goal to put United 1-0 up against the Baggies and the local lad is grabbing the headlines with his manager publicly praising him.
