Arsenal will face Manchester United on Sunday in the Premier League. The match will surely be a ‘Match of Pride’ for both the teams. The fans wait for these kind of matches throughout the whole season and the players will be also up for it.
Arsene Wenger will surely give rest to some of his key players in this match as their second leg match against Atletico Madrid is on next Thursday. So, it could give a decent advantage to Manchester United as they will have the full first squad available for the fixture.
This could give a glimpse of many future stars and Jesse Lingard could well be one of them. Lingard is running through the form of his life in this season. He has produced several magical moments for Manchester United in recent times. Arsene Wenger should have to make some plans to stop Jesse Lingard to create something special in this match.
Lingard has scored 8 goals and assisted seven for Manchester United this season. He was really phenomenal in several occasions for Manchester United helping them to come on the top. So, he will surely be a cause of Arsene Wenger’s headache ahead of this match.
He prefers to play from the right side, though he can feature on either wings. Jesse can also be deployed as an attacking midfielder. Jesse Lingard’s role in this Manchester United side is not only to score odd goals but also to Provide good balls offensively – something which he has been doing extremely good right now.
His passing and ability to play long balls will play an important role for Manchester United. He will surely try to make some decisive moves to destroy the poor defense of the Gunners.
Manchester United may have loads of attacking options but Jesse Lingard does have something special within himself to take the game away from the opponents. Arsene Wenger will probably rely on Sead Kolasinac to bottle up Jesse Lingard on-field. Kolasinac’s physicality will be surely cause some problems for Jesse Lingard to play his natural game. He will surely also face some sort of zonal marking from the whole defensive unit of the Gunners.
Jose Mourinho will surely bank on his Trump card Jesse Lingard in this match against the Gunners and all eyes will be on how he influences the Manchester United side over Arsenal in the Premier League. Manchester United mostly rely on counter attacks in these sorts of big matches under the management of Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho likes to make his team’s defense intact and go for occasional counter attacks to get the Goal. Manchester United got success with this strategy in most of the big matches in this season.
Jesse Lingard is one of the key players to start those counters and his blistering pace would be really helpful for the Red Devils in the match. So, Arsene Wenger should be really cautious about Jesse Lingard if the Gunners have to get a good result from this encounter.
