David Moyes makes Jesse Lingard admission as Man United loanee suffers injury

2 min read

David Moyes says Jesse Lingard will not get any special treatment from him despite limping off during West Ham’s defeat to Newcastle United.

The Manchester United loanee continued his brilliant form for the 10-man Hammers as he netted a penalty to make it 2-2 after his side had fallen 2-0 down to the Magpies following two uncharacteristic defensive errors.

That was his eighth goal in nine matches since joining the Hammers on loan from United in January, helping Moyes’ side to an unlikely push to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Yet Lingard limped off shortly afterwards, with Newcastle going on to net a late winner.

Speaking post-match, Moyes told Football.London that it did not look like it was a significant injury problem for the 28-year-old.

The former United boss also said that he expects a lot from his players and that Lingard is no different.

He said: “I think it was just cramp, I have not had a chance to speak to the physio about it but I don’t think it was anything serious, to be honest.”

He added: “I think the one thing about Jesse, Jesse is a really fit boy. Jesse wants to play.

“I think I push all my players hard, Jesse is no different.

“He won’t get any favoured treatment – certainly not for a Scotsman going into the Euros this year!

“We’re really pleased with him. He does a lot of good things, he was quieter today – I know he got us a goal – but he was a bit quieter because we didn’t play well enough into the forward players.”
