Newcastle play host to Manchester United on Wednesday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has guided United to three straight wins since taking over from Jose Mourinho, with 12 goals scored in that time against Cardiff City, Huddersfield Town and AFC Bournemouth.
Now, they travel to St. James' Park ahead of Wednesday night's Premier League fixture in what could pose a different kind of test. Mourinho saw his side lose 1-0 in the same fixture last season, Matt Ritchie scoring the only goal of the game.
Lingard said that if Manchester United play in the same manner that saw Solskjaer's side dismantle their opponents in the last three games, they will make it four wins out of four.
“If we go into the game like we have done the first three matches we’ll win,” Lingard said. “We’ve had the right mentality, killing teams. That mentality is very important.
"Ole has told us to start quickly, press teams and make sure we’re on the front foot and make sure that the first 15-20 minutes can decide the game.”
Newcastle, on the other hand, come into the match with just one win from their last seven Premier League outings, which has included three losses to West Ham United, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Liverpool.
They failed to hold onto a 1-0 lead over Watford over the weekend following Salomon Rondon's opener, as Abdoulaye Doucoure scored with eight minutes remaining to draw 1-1.
Newcastle fans reacted to Lingard's confident comments by agreeing with the Manchester United playmaker, suggesting that even if United play at half capacity, they will pick up three points.
he is correct - if they play half as well they will also win.— Mick Parry (@MickP1964) December 31, 2018

If they play to 50% of how they have done, they will win— Dale Ord. (@daleord) December 31, 2018
Fair assessment tbh— John Ainsworth (@johnnyains) December 31, 2018
I think they will win but we will give them a much thougher game than what Cardiff, Huddersfield and Bournemouth have done.— Daniel Driveklepp (@DanielToon87) December 31, 2018
