Jesse Lingard Praises Influence of Fred and Marcus Rashford

Manchester United’s winger Jesse Lingard praised the influence of Fred and Marcus Rashford in recent games. The duo have been crucial in helping United claim wins over Manchester City and Tottenham in recent weeks. This has improved hopes of United finishing in the top four, as they are now just four points behind Chelsea after 17 matches. These victories have come at a time when a lot of questions were asked about manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s ability to lead a huge club like Manchester United. Rashford has come up with three goals in these two games while Fred has been impressive in midfield.


The duo have also been criticised at various stages. Fred has been constant source of criticism ever since making a big-money transfer from Shakhtar Donetsk under Jose Mourinho. Rashford, meanwhile, has been blowing hot and cold in the last couple of years. Lingard was himself on the fringes of first-team before being brought back by Solskjaer. Now, Lingard says that Rashford and Fred have been making immense contribution to the team over the last few games and he expects the momentum to continue.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed that Manchester United have improved tremendously since suffering a 4-0 defeat against Everton back in April. This was seen as one of the biggest low points ofSolskjaer’s reign at the club. It led to many questioning his future and the decision by United to appoint him as the replacement for Jose Mourinho. Even though United have been far from consistent in the 2019-20 campaign, the team has been doing well to themselves in contention for the top four places. The club head into the weekend’s game against Everton without a defeat in the last four matches across all competitions.


Crucially, the club has been able to reach the upper stages of the Europa League after a comprehensive 4-0 win over AZ Alkmaar.United have also been able to win the group as a result. There is less doom and gloom surrounding United, but the team has to continue this good run of form in order to have a chance of finishing in the top four. For a club of United’s magnitude, they need to be regularly qualifying for the Champions League. United are four points away from Chelsea after 17 matches even after substantial strengthening in the summer with the arrivals of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Daniel James, and Harry Maguire.

Rio Ferdinand names Daniel James as Manchester United’s most influential player

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has said that Daniel James has been the Red Devils’ most influential player during the opening stages of the campaign. The Wales international was the least high-profile signing made by United during the summer transfer window but he has already made an impressive contribution in the attack with three goals in the Premier League.


Speaking to TalkSPORT, Ferdinand said that no one expected James to make a quick impression but he has certainly become the most influential player within the squad, he told: “I don’t think they [United] expected what they have got from Daniel James so early on in his Manchester United career. He’s probably been their most influential player so far, so what does that really say about that squad? You’re buying someone from Swansea who was probably brought in as someone who is going to flourish at a later date. However, he’s been forced to the forefront as their main man in the team at the moment. That really says where Manchester United are at this minute in time.”
