‘I feel back to myself’: Jesse Lingard sends message to Man United fans
Jesse Lingard has a message for Man United's fans ahead of Sunday's clash with Everton
Jesse Lingard says that he feels “back to himself” after a stuttering start to the season with Manchester United.
The Red Devils have struggled to find consistent form in the Premier League all season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and they are currently outside of the top four.
Manchester United have, however, enjoyed something of a mini-resurgence in recent days after they followed up their victory over Tottenham Hotspur last week with a 2-1 win at Manchester City at the weekend.
Those two results have hoisted Manchester United up into fifth place in the table and five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea FC.
The 26-year-old Lingard produced impressive displays in both of their recent wins and the England international says he is now feeling back in top four.
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Lingard said: “I feel good, I feel back to myself, I feel fit, I feel sharp.
“I love working for the team, I love winning games and playing matches.
“People go through dips in form, it’s just about finding the right balance and getting back to your usual self which I have.
“Of course you’re frustrated when you’re not playing. You’ve still got to have the right attitude and right mentality when you do go on and try to make an impact.
“I felt like I did against Sheffield United and from there I’ve kicked on.”
Lingard is yet to score in the Premier League this season and he has only started six of Manchester United’s 16 games in the top flight this term.
Manchester United will return to Premier League action this weekend when they take on Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
Before that, they will host AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League on Thursday night at Old Trafford.
