Daley Blind has sent a message to Jesse Lingard after the midfielder scored his first Manchester United goal in a 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion.

The Red Devils scored their first Premier League goal since 17 October after youngster Lingard netted a fine effort in the 52nd minute for the hosts.

The former Birmingham City midfielder has become a key part of United’s side in recent weeks in the absence of injured left-back Luke Shaw.

And United finally secured three points when Juan Mata dispatched from the spot-kick after West Brom defender Gareth McAuley fouled Anthony Martial in the 90th minute.

Netherlands international Blind posted the above snap of his celebration with Lingard and wrote the following message on his Instagram page: “Great win! Top finish @jesselingard35_ 🔴🔴🔴 😂#WillieBeamen #MUFC”

Lingard has scored one goal in four Premier League appearances in all competitions for United this season.
