Jamie Redknapp has lavished praise on Jesse Lingard following his good form for Manchester United so far this season.

The England international was once again in top form on Sunday as he scored Manchester United’s second goal in their 2-1 victory at West Brom in the Premier League.

Lingard has become something of a more regular fixture in the first team at Old Trafford this season, although he has still only started six of Manchester United’s 18 Premier League games this term.

The 25-year-old has scored four goals and made three assists in 14 Premier League games for Manchester United so far this term.

And former Liverpool FC midfielder Redknapp has been impressed by the England international’s rise in form under Jose Mourinho this season.

Speaking to Sky Sports on Sunday, Redknapp said: “Jesse Lingard pops up with important goals.

“He got another winner today [against West Brom]. He’s becoming really influential in this team.”

Lingard will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Saturday night with a trip to Leicester City.

Before that, Mourinho’s men will take on Bristol City in the League Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday nigth.

Manchester United are currently in second place in the Premier League table and 11 points behind leaders Manchester City after 18 games of the new campaign.
