Manchester United are losing 1-0 at home to Crystal Palace at half time and Jesse Lingard is one player attracting a lot of stick.
These Red Devils supporters have taken to Twitter to vent their frustration at Lingard once again making Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s starting XI despite not looking like offering much for some time now.
The England international has scored some big goals for Man Utd in the past and enjoyed a real purple patch of form in the 2017/18 season, though it’s becoming harder to argue that he really warrants a regular place in the side.
Loads of United fans are now taking aim at Lingard, and for Solskjaer for persisting with an attacking midfield player to neither scores nor assists.
It remains to be seen if the Norwegian tactician will change things around at half time, but if the fans could pick anyone to go off, it seems Lingard would be first in the firing line…
Lingard is Tragic. Chance creation zero. Goals zero. He has DNA tho

McTominay and Lingard are absolute garbage. Ashley Young getting found out by Zaha which I’ve anticipated.?????#mufc

What does Lingard bring to this United team?

I feel sick seeing Ashley Young and Jesse Lingard in a Manchester United shirt in 2019. Absolutely disgusting performance.

Ole is to blame too. Lingard still starting is cowardice. His willingness to go into the season without more reinforcements has cost us. The whole faith in youth spiel is fine, until it blows up in your face like this. We have no gamechangers outside of Pogba (who's playing CDM).

Lingard is the problem

Lingard has no creativity. Why is playing behind the striker. No wait. Why is he playing at all ffs

Don't even get me started on Lingard. I prefer not to speak

UPDATE: Lingard was later replaced by Mason Greenwood, with some fans said to have cheered the decision…
No penalty. Lingard off for Greenwood. Some celebratory cheers from a minority. #mufc
