Manchester United playmaker Jesse Lingard says he wants to impress Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the Europa League.

The 27-year-old has admitted his season has been subpar, and reports in the UK have claimed he could be shipped out of Old Trafford.

But Lingard will get his chance to impress in Wednesday’s last-16 clash with LASK.

“Every game, every minute I play, I have got to try and impress and do as much as I can to help the team and impress the manager,” Lingard said ahead of the second-leg, United leading 5-0.

“It is the perfect way now to get a run in the tournament.

“I’ve not had the best of seasons and after lockdown I wanted to impress the manager.

“I’ve always scored goals from Under-18s to reserves, It’s about setting goals for me throughout the season. Each game is different and it’s about setting targets on a personal level in a game – how many shots you have, how many chances you can create.

“That’s down to you as an individual. I’ve been working on it, doing a lot in training and working with the coaches on my finishing. The hard work paid off [against Leicester] and a goal gives you confidence. I reckon I can show it in the LASK game.”
