“I just thought I had the confidence to go on and take it. I hadn't taken a penalty for ages,”Lingard admitted,
“but I felt I had the confidence, and after that I wanted to go on and score more goals and I got the second at the end.
“Just to be positive. Take risks. If you lose the ball, win it back, and play the United way - attacking football, entertaining football. For us as players, we enjoyed it today.”
“When we play close, we play one and two-touch, it's enjoyable football,”confessed Jesse.
“You saw Anthony's goal, it was a great goal, great link-up play, and we did that throughout the game.
“We look forward to each game now,”stressed our Man of the Match.
“That game's out the way, we move on and we got the three points, and all eyes on Huddersfield now. After that we move on and we keep picking three points up and moving up the table.
“We like festive football. A lot of games come thick and fast, which we enjoy. We enjoy playing matches, especially in front of our home crowd, so they'll be behind us and support us through them games.
