Jesse Lingard wins it for Manchester United!
It took Jesse Lingard just 11 minutes to make a huge difference for Manchester United and the England midfielder won the game against Chelsea.
Considering his form this season, Lingard can count himself unlucky to have missed out in recent games, primarily as Jose Mourinho tries to fit Alexis Sanchez into his side.
Lingard has also looked a little tired after a stunning spell of goals around the turn of calendar year.
Before today, Lingard’s most recent goal for Manchester United had come against Yeovil Town at the end of January.
Jesse Lingard the Super Sub
Lingard replaced Anthony Martial on 64 minutes, eleven minutes later Lingard headed home the winner from a Romelu Lukaku cross.
Everyone saw Lukaku pull out the “Wakanda Forever” celebration after heading past Thibaut Courtois.
The “Wakanda Forever” celebration has emerged in popular culture thanks to the Black Panther film.
The Black Panther is set in a fictional African country called Wakanda and “Wakanda Forever” has been a rallying cry for the movie.
Black Panther is undoubtedly the biggest film of 2018 so far and has smashed Box Office records across the globe.
Clearly Black Panther has also resonated with Jesse Lingard and Paul Pogba…

That will surely change in time…
