Jesse Lingard Gives Wimbledon Fans £600 After Missing Soccer AM Penalty

Jesse Lingard Gives Wimbledon Fans £600 After Missing Soccer AM Penalty

Last night, Jesse Lingard exhibited his finishing prowess at the Emirates Stadium, neatly dispatching United's second goal in their 3-1 victory over Arsenal.

But unfortunately for Wimbledon fans, he didn't put these skills to good use on Soccer AM this morning.

All the 26-year-old had to do was convert a penalty to win £500 for the group of Wimbledon fans on the show, but he was thwarted by the keeper - to those fans' shock and dismay.


Clearly, Jesse underestimated the goalie, and he could be heard defending himself, saying: "I didn't know he was gonna save it properly like that."

Evidently feeling bad about his uncharacteristic miss, Jesse decided to make it up to the fans off-air, giving each a hundred smackers... of course he has £600 quid just lying about in his pocket.

Still, it's undeniably a top gesture from the England international, who will no doubt make the money back while taking a shit at Carrington on Monday.

Lingard is earning his wages at the moment though and has been one of United's brightest sparks under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

He put United two-up against Arsenal last night thanks to some slick work from Romelu Lukaku, who brilliantly found his teammate inside the box.

Despite the 26-year-old finding the back of the net, TV cameras panned to the Belgium striker who put his arms out before cupping his ears.

In doing so, they completely missed Lingard's Michael Jackson-inspired celebration, which was considerably more impressive.

Thankfully, a fan captured his full celebration and it's superb.

First the 'milly rock' and now the 'moonwalk'. It's like the Emirates is Lingard's personal dance-floor.

Indeed, he uploaded an image on social media of himself moonwalking and tagged the location as 'dancefloor'.

No doubt Utd fans have much more time for such celebrations than they might have done earlier on in the season, with the Red Devils having won all eight games since Solskjaer took charge.
