Lingard destroyed on Twitter after terrible miss for Manchester United vs West Ham [Best Tweets]

Manchester United were made to sweat it out for an eventually convincing victory over West Ham United, but it could all have been avoided if Jesse Lingard hadn’t made a terrible miss in the first half.

Goals from Juan Mata and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were enough to give United all three points and another substantial boost in their hunt for a top four finish.

However, Lingard pulled off what could arguably be one of the worst misses of the season. After being set up by a Zlatan Ibrahimovic cross, Valencia’s effort was saved by West Ham keeper Darren Randolph only to fall at the feet of Lingard in the mouth of goal.

The English winger shockingly side-footed it into the post and out. Fans were shocked by the terrible miss and couldn’t help but vent out on Twitter.

The 24-year-old winger is an academy graduate and fan favourite. Lingard has had his moments in a United shirt, scoring in big games like the FA Cup final and Community Shield recently.

It is therefore no surprise that a few of the Old Trafford faithful stood up for the Englishman even as he was being criticized for a, quite frankly, terrible miss.

However the fact remains that with Lingard’s miss one of the highlights of the game, combined with the brilliant performances put in by Juan Mata and Marcus Rashford, the 24-year-old may not find it easy to break into the starting XI again.

This is not to mention the likes of Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who are probably the first choice wingers at Mourinho’s disposal at the present moment.
