Moyes reveals Lingard chat after Man United defeat

After West Ham's defeat to Manchester United on Sunday, David Moyes revealed what he said to Jesse Lingard.

On Sunday, the midfielder scored in the 89th minute to secure the Red Devils all three points after David De Gea saved a penalty from Mark Noble deep into stoppage time.

After the final whistle, Moyes spoke with Lingard, who had broken West Ham's resolute defense with an error for United against Young Boys on Tuesday.

"I was laughing but more importantly, I said how well he recovered from his mistake in midweek; he makes a mistake which probably cost Manchester United a first win in the Champions League," he explained.

"But that's what football does you always get a second chance in football to bounce back. Jesse got a second chance to bounce back as a player when he was at West Ham last year so we'll always be grateful, for what he did for us," the Scot stated.

"I wish he hadn't scored but we had a chance to get a draw out of it and we missed our chance."

Lingard spent the second half of last season on loan at the London Stadium, where he scored nine goals in 16 Premier League games and helped the Irons qualify for the Europa League.
