Jesse Lingard Finishes 2019 Without A Single Premier League Goal Or Assist

Jesse Lingard Finishes 2019 Without A Single Premier League Goal Or Assist

Jesse Lingard will finish 2019 without a single goal or assist in 28 games in the Premier League.

The Manchester United midfielder played in his side's 2-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side ended the year with a win.

But he was unable to get on the scoresheet or set up a teammate, meaning the England man has had a year to forget in English football's top tier after a truly dreadful tally in terms of goal contributions.

You have to go as far back as December 22nd 2018, in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first game in charge, for Lingard's last Premier League goals, - when he bagged a brace in a 5-1 win over Cardiff City.

Lingard recently revealed that his mum has been suffering with an illness that led to him looking after brother Jasper, 14, and sister Daisy-boo, 11.

The 27-year old opened up to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer about his struggles off the pitch and is now hoping to to put it all behind him in 2020.

"I feel I've got my form back now and I'm back to my old self," Lingard told the Daily Mail.

"Obviously form is going to be up and down. When you're in a bad patch you've just got to fight through it, listen to the manager and the coaches, work hard on the training pitch and give 110 per cent. I've done that and I feel really sharp.

"I always like to make an impact - goal and assists or work-rate and helping the team. I thoroughly enjoy doing that."
