Fan Placed A Bet On Jesse Lingard Failing To Score Or Assist In The Premier League This Season
Way back in August when the season started, Antony Johnson put £3.30 on Lingard drawing a blank in the entire campaign.
With two games remaining and Lingard unlikely to start given he's only been in the United squad on two occasions for the last seven league fixtures, it's looking like the bet could come in.
If Lingard doesn't get a goal contribution against West Ham or Leicester City, then Anthony will have a nice £135.30 coming into his account from a very unique but straightforward bet.
Despite Lingard himself reportedly feeling as though he's still "one of the best No.10's in Europe", he's experienced a monumental decline in recent times.

The England international went over a year without scoring domestically before ending the drought in a 6-0 thrashing over Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup back in January.

In the Europa League he's scored against Astana and assisted against Club Brugge but it's been a miserable time for Lingard, who has been a peripheral figure ever since Bruno Fernandes arrived and completely transformed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side.
Super agent Mino Raiola is now working for Lingard and there's already been talk of interest from both Roma and Atletico Madrid going into the transfer window.
His contract currently has under a year remaining and while United are also able to extend it by an extra year, it's looking increasingly likely that the youth product will be out the exit door.
