Manchester United loan update: 20-year-old makes it 6 goals in 7 games.

Old Trafford

A brief look at the Manchester United players progress serving time at other clubs.

Jesse Lingard is the man of the hour for Manchester United, and Birmingham City this week. 

The 20-year-old has been simply brilliant since he moved to the West Midlands on loan, and his impressive performance for the England under-21's just epitomised the form he is currently in.

He didn't disappoint in Birmingham's last game against Blackpool netting the first goal of the game and putting Birmingham in the ascendancy. However, Blackpool fought back hard on managed to salvage a point at St. Andrews.

The goal on Saturday means that the 20-year-old midfielder has struck 6 goals in 7 games, making him one of the deadliest players in front of goal in the division.


Want-a-way striker Federico Macheda rejoined Doncaster Rovers on loan last week and made an instant impact on his debut.

The 22-year-old Italian set-up Dean Furman in the 11th minute to put the Yorkshire side 1-0 up. Yeovil got themselves back into the game through Byron Webster, but thanks to a late Mark Duffy goal the United youngster was on the winning side.


Elsewhere in the Football League, Ryan Tunnicliffe and Nick Powell both had disappointing afternoons and will have come away frustrated.

Ryan Tunnicliffe was on the end of a 2-1 loss to promotion favourites Leicester City, and saw Ipswich embed themselves mid-table 6 poins outside the play-offs.

Nick Powell would have been perhaps the more frustrated out of the two, as he couldn't get hold of the game as much as he would have liked. Brighton are a notorious possession hungry, passing side and it seemed to have worked Wigan down quite effectively. Brighton pushed themselves back into play-off contention, whilst Wigan still look off the pace. 

Ben Amos had a fairly good outing for Carlisle as they managed their first clean-sheet in 4 games, 

The Cumbrian side are still far from safe, but look to have enough in their locker to pull away from the bottom 4 in League One.


Overseas representatives Angelo Henriquez and Bebe can both have mixed feelings.

Despite playing the majority of the match, Henriquez saw his team to defeat at the hands of Girona, leaving Zaragoza in the lower mid-table positions.

Bebe could only manage 20 minutes, but despite that could boast that he was on the winning team, with a 1-0 win over Belenenses.
