Manchester United fans were not at all impressed with Jesse Lingard’s performance against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup semifinal on Tuesday.
The Englishman possessed absolutely no threat to Manchester City defence and lacked any sort of creativity in the midfield.
Many Manchester United fans took to the social media platforms after the game and almost all of them were of the opinion that it’s time for Jesse Lingard to go. He no longer has the credibility to wear the red shirt anymore.
Another player who was in the line of fire was Andreas Pereira.

Lingard, Pereira and Jones don’t deserve to stay with Manchester United!!!
Send them to play somewhere else!#MUNMCI

Seriously if this club doesn't replace Pereira and Lingard in this transfer window there's absolutely no chance of even coming close to a sniff of success this season.

You know what? Saturday will be my last day watching Manchester United until OGS and Lingard leave my club. I’ll finish this match just to fully accept how shit we are and Saturday to fully say goodbye.

I always try to see the good in people and to never rule anything out. Football is a game in which players can go from seemingly irredeemable lows to the peak of their powers with the right environment, but honestly, I have had enough of this guy.
Lingard made his debut in 2014, and aside from a few wonder goals here and there, along with the occasional good counter-attacking display, the man offers nothing. Aged 27, he is no longer a youngster, but the fact that he is still viewed in that bracket is telling.
He is not the only one, but Lingard is a United player who needs to be gone by this time next year.
