Jesse Lingard trolls Young: Manchester United secured another three points in the Premier League and moved above Arsenal on the table.
Manchester United beat Leicester City 1-0 on Sunday night as they moved a point ahead of Arsenal at fifth position in the Premier League.
Marcus Rashford’s goal in the first half remained the sole difference between the two sides as David De Gea made a few important saves to deny a Leicester equalizer.
While Solskjaer immediately flew to France to attend PSG’s game against Lyon, players took to social media to celebrate their win.
Jesse Lingard cheekily trolled Ashley Young after the victory.
Jesse Lingard trolls Young:
Lingard and Young started in the game against Leicester. As the team secured three points in the game, the English youngster took to social media to celebrate the win.
He posted a picture of a bird who entered the pitch during the game and cheekily trolled Ashley Young over the incident.
He wrote, “Absolute animal out there today (referring to the bird). Glad Ashley Young stayed away.”
The caption was a reference to the incident in August 2014, when bird poop dropped into Ashley Young’s mouth while he was shouting at one of his teammates.

Both the players have been a key part of Manchester United’s first team under Solskjaer.
The side faces a tough few weeks ahead as United will take on Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League, and will take on league leaders Liverpool on February 24.
I think Martial, Rashford and Lingard will cause this PSG defence all kind of trouble. I also think Ndombele is incredible and needs to be at United. So glad Solskjær and Phelan are watching this live.

In the Premier League table, United are now only two points behind the fourth-placed Chelsea. At the top, Liverpool will play against West Ham United later tonight. A win would take them five points ahead of the second-placed Manchester City, who cruised to a 3-1 victory over Arsenal yesterday.
The unbeaten run continues for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United the top four looks a strong possibility now. Quality goal by Rashford to win the game .But more importantly a top team performance #mufc

Really important move from Solskjaer to keep faith in Rashford as our starting forward. No academy graduate has scored more goals in their first 100 league appearances. After that early miss, I was nervous it would be a repeat of Burnley. But his touch and finish was top today. pic.twitter.com/HhufxPPVNh
