Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard was the subject of attacks from the club’s fans on social media after his embarrassing display against city rivals Manchester City in the first leg of the semifinal clash between the two teams in the Carabao Cup.
At Old Trafford, the Red Devils were well beaten and Jesse Lingard was one of the worst players on the pitch for Manchester United who played the first leg at home.
Jesse Lingard barely had any meaningful thing to do throughout the first half before the England international was replaced by the more experienced Nemanja Matic at the halftime interval.

It was not surprising that the exit of Lingard coincided with the mini-revival from Manchester United who had conceded three first-half goals without any replay.
With Matic, Manchester United won the second half 1-0 to make the full-time score 3-1 to Manchester City and also stay in the semifinal tie by the tightest of margins.
Bernardo Silva scored a worldie to give Manchester City the lead before Riyad Mahrez added a second strike shortly afterward before Manchester United conceded a third goal through Andreas Pereira’s own goal.
Marcus Rashford was the skipper for the night for Manchester United and he pulled one back in the second half to ensure that his team stayed in the tie ahead of the second leg at the Etihad Stadium three weeks time.
