The Englishman also got some support from Bruno Fernandes, Cristiano Ronaldo, Juan Mata and the official Manchester United account, among others.

Last night hurt. Every time I pull on the United shirt, I hope people understand what it means to me. I always go out wanting to do the best for the club, the team and especially the fans,” Lingard said.

The forward also revealed how he never wanted to lose any games and is hopeful for the game against West Ham. The Hammers are a tough opposition as David Moyes has put together an amazing squad with the relatively low funds at his disposal.
