Man Utd fans warn Jesse Lingard not to try ‘claim’ Luke Shaw’s goal vs Derby

Jesse Lingard has been warned by Manchester United fans not to accept their first goal even though it may have brushed his back.

The Red Devils were two goals to the good at half-time against Derby at Pride Park with Odion Ighalo grabbing their second.

But their opener has caused plenty of debate with some awarding the goal to Lingard and others handing it to Luke Shaw.

The full-back looked initially as if he'd scored just his second goal for the club but his volley which looped over the Derby goalkeeper looks as if it got a nick on Lingard's back.

But the 26-year-old's stock with the United fans is anything but high and following an average display thus far fans are demanding he let Shaw be given the goal.

"@JesseLingard can't even claim to be a footballer never mind someone else's goals," claimed one.

"Ok, no way is Jesse Lingard claiming that goal," added a second.

"Did they actually give Jesse Lingard the goal instead of Luke Shaw?!?!" questioned another.
