Lingard was substituted in the first half with a suspected hamstring problem and Van Gaal said the 22-year-old would have to be assessed to ascertain the extent of the damage.
“With Lingard, it is a second occurrence in a short space of time so we will have to see,” Van Gaal was quoted as saying by the club’s website (www.manutd.com).

Lingard’s addition to an already lengthy injury list increases Van Gaal’s selection woes.
The Dutchman was missing seven first team players before the Bournemouth game, including captain Wayne Rooney, defenders Chris Smalling, Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw, and midfielders Antonio Valencia and Ander Herrera.
Midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger missed the Bournemouth game due to suspension, and is also ruled out for United’s next two games against Norwich City and Stoke City.
