Ander Herrera has lavished praise on Jesse Lingard following the midfielder’s sparkling form for Manchester United in recent weeks.

The England international continued his brilliant displays for the Red Devils on Friday night when he hit the opening goal in the 2-0 victory over Derby County in the third round of the FA Cup on Friday night at Old Trafford.

Lingard has now scored five goals in his last six games for Jose Mourinho’s men and has rightly been earning plenty of praise for his performances.

The 25-year-old was named as the man of the match once again against Derby as he set Manchester United on their way towards victory before Romelu Lukaku added a second later on.

And Red Devils midfielder Herrera has been absolutely delighted by what he has seen from Lingard in recent weeks in a Manchester United shirt.

Herrera told MUTV after Friday’s game: “Jesse Lingard is on fire now. He has to keep on trying to shoot.

“He’s in that moment where everything goes well. But he deserves it, he’s constantly moving.”

Manchester United now have a week off before their Premier League clash against Stoke City at Old Trafford on Monday week.

The Red Devils are currently in second place in the Premier League table as they look to try and close the gap to Manchester City, who are 15 points ahead of them after 22 games.
