Jesse Lingard headed out to dinner with Rio Ferdinand ahead of Manchester United’s clash with Liverpool in the Premier League on Monday night.

The Red Devils head into the game looking to return to winning ways after the disappointment of their 1-1 draw with Stoke City before the international break.

Lingard was on international duty with England in recent days and helped the Three Lions take four points from their games against Malta and Slovenia.

The winger will now be turning his attentions back to Manchester United affairs as he prepares for next Monday night’s crunch clash against Liverpool at Anfield.

And Lingard was all smiles as he posed for a picture with Ferdinand and fellow Premier League stars Ashley Williams and Michael Keane.

Ferdinand posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Lovely bit a food & jokes with these guys… im sure a couple of them ate some finger nails while eating tho #savages !! #NoShares !!!”
