Jesse Lingard is in the midst of an excellent break out season for Manchester United.

The Manchester United youth product scored the opener in the 3-0 win against Stoke, which was fitting after the Old Trafford crowd had marked the anniversary of the Busby Babes.

Lingard converted a Cameron Borthwick-Jackson cross in the 14th minute and played the full 90 minutes for Louis van Gaal’s side.

After the game, Lingard posted on Instagram a four-picture montage and paid reference to his trademark celebration.

It is of course no coincidence, that Paul Pogba and Lingard, who both came through the Manchester United ranks together, have adopted the Dab celebration.

We are not quite sure about the “Dabberman” self-proclaimed nickname though!

Great win tonight, happy to get a goal and the 3 points #MOTM #DABBERMAN #DAB #manchesterunited @cbj43
