It seems as though Jesse Lingard rather enjoys playing at the Emirates Stadium.

Last season, the midfielder performed the ‘Milly Rock’ dance celebration after scoring twice during Manchester United’s 3-1 win away to Arsenal.

And he was up to his old tricks once again on Friday night.

Alexis Sanchez had put the Red Devils 1-0 ahead before Lingard doubled their lead just two minutes later.

And it was dance time.

This time, Lingard produced Michael Jackson’s famous moonwalk in front of the Arsenal fans.

To do that in studs is pretty impressive.

Unfortunately, TV cameras didn’t quite capture that as they showed Romelu Lukaku - who assisted both goals - with his arms spread in celebration.

However, luckily for us, a fan has captured Lingard’s celebration in full - and it’s rather brilliant.

With the United players choosing to celebrate with Lukaku for his assist, Lingard performed his little dance on his own in the faces of the fuming home fans.


Take a look:

That’s just superb.

And it seems Lingard enjoyed his celebration himself.

After the match, he took to Instagram to upload an image of his ‘MJ’ celebration.

And you may notice the location in his Instagram post - ‘Dancefloor.’

So, so cheeky.

After the match, Lingard's manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer paid tribute to the goalscoring hero.

"Jesse’s a big game-player," said Solskjaer, per Manchester Evening News. "He’s shown that for England, for us. He always pops up with goals, was it last year counter-attack goal against Arsenal?

"So Jesse is someone we never, never hesitate to put in a Man United team and he’s been brought through this system, he knows what this means, he knows the club, he knows this history, he knows all the counter-attacking goals we’ve scored against Arsenal. ‘He knows everything about the club and he’s someone we’ll look after."
