Solskjaer happy with Lingard for answering critics

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was happy with Jesse Lingard's output in their win over West Ham on Sunday.

Lingard had come under intense criticism by a section of United fans following his midweek error against Young Boys but redeemed himself by nothing the winner for the Solskjaer side in the league.

"I think today was a good answer! Jesse was quite clear he wants to fight for his place and be part of a Manchester United team that is going places.

"I can't speak for Jesse now but he's really contributing, he'll play on Wednesday as I'll make a few changes. So pleased he handles the highs and lows really well. He's becoming a grown man and is a very good player."

"I'm so happy for Jesse, he had a tough evening on Tuesday, he knuckled down, he's a positive lad, so happy for him. A good turn by Jesse, good finish," Solskjaer said after the game.

United will be hosting the same opponents in the EFL Cup at Old Trafford on Wednesday with Lingard set to be handed a start in the match.
