Jesse Lingard’s Performance Against Arsenal Is Torn Apart In Commentator’s Brutal Analysis

A commentator has blasted Jesse Lingard after his woeful performance in Manchester United's 2-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates.

And Lingard failed to impress for United against the Gunners and was replaced early in the second half by Andreas Perreira.

Now, a commentator for beIN Sports brutally ripped into the United player's performance even before he was taken off the field.

The beIN Sports commentator said: "If I was the manager, I would send Jesse Lingard home at half-time.

"He doesn't create any chances for Manchester United, he's just taking up space on the pitch."

United fans also flooded social media with frustration towards Lingard's showing against the Gunners.

And the United player praised Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for helping to put his problems to one side on the pitch.

"I wasn't performing and he was on me all the time. He wanted more from me," he told the Daily Mail.

"So I felt it was best to get everything off my chest and tell him why my head wasn't right. So I knocked on his door.

"[...] When I came on the manager said to me, 'Just go on and play with a smile and enjoy it.'

"To hear that gives you confidence. He knows what kind of character I am. I need to be smiling.

"He has just told me that everything will be OK. Maybe I just needed someone to say that.

"He said he just wanted the old Jesse back and maybe I can give him that now."

Nicolas Pepe opened the scoring early in the first half before Sokratis scored Arsenal's second before half-time.
