Manchester United fans react on Twitter to Jesse Lingard's performance

Champions League

Jesse Lingard put in a solid performance as Manchester United drew with CSKA Moscow.

Manchester United came from behind to claim a draw with CSKA Moscow, making it two Champions League games back to back unbeaten.

Seydou Doumbia had put the home side ahead in the first half, only for Anthony Martial to head in an equaliser in the second.

It was the Frenchman's fifth goal in nine games for United, capitalising on a pinpoint cross from Antonio Valencia.

Manager Louis van Gaal's team selection was notable for leaving out winger Memphis Depay once again, picking England under-21 international Jesse Lingard in his place.

After an injury hit campaign last season, Lingard is beginning to make an impression this time around, playing the second half in the 3-0 win over Everton at the weekend.

Lingard played the first 79 minutes before being substituted for Depay, and performed solidly, recording an 82 per cent pass completion rate.

He made four successful dribbles, only bettered by Anthony Martial (5), and contributed defensively with one tackle and one interception.

It was not a headline grabbing performance, but one where he looked liked he was part of the team and not overcome by nerves. 

Van Gaal faces a big decision at the weekend whether to include Lingard against Manchester City on Sunday, and his display made it at least a possibility.
