Manchester United pulled off the result of the week with their last gasp win away at Juventus.

The Italian mega-club have been widely tipped to finally end their European trophy drought this year and would’ve been confident of securing three point against a shaky United side.

After Cristiano Ronaldo’s sumptuous second-half volley the Red Devils had a mountain to climb but climb it they did.

Goals from Juan Mata and an Alex Sandro own goal saw them overturn the deficit and snatch the win right at the death.

It was the kind of fighting performance that became synonymous with Alex Ferguson’s sides but something United have been so desperately lacking of late.

Current manager Jose Mourinho made it clear how he felt about the win, with his post game antics causing a bit of an uproar amongst both the Juventus fans and players alike.

In the end though, it was a memorable night for all connected to the Old Trafford team.

Well, all except for perhaps Jesse Lingard.

The England man had a bit of an embarrassing moment during the first half when attempting to tackle Alex Sandro.

Lingard made the fatal error of leaving his legs open and Sandro casually poked the ball through leaving his opponent for dead.

Oh dear.

As far as nutmegs go, that really was all too simple.

Lingard would have been hoping that the late drama might have done enough to distract from his first half gaff but England team mate Kyle Walker was not about to let him get away with it.

Taking to Twitter, the Manchester City defender mocked Lingard pretty ruthlessly as he posted his own version of the moment.

“It really just never gets old does it? @JesseLingard stop giving me content mate”.


It is safe to say that Walker absolutely loved Sandro embarrassing Lingard and you can be certain he will bringing it up when they meet in this weekend’s Manchester derby.

Lingard, unsurprisingly, is yet to respond.
