United star’s cracking repose to his choice for winning the Premier League

With Liverpool and Manchester City locked in a fierce battle for the top prize in English football, and Tottenham managing to keep pace with an push the two giants, fans of the Red Devils can’t decide who to support

Basically, for fans of Manchester United, it has been a case of choosing the lesser of two evils in the Premier League title race, with Liverpool currently leading the way, three points ahead of City with 13 games left in the season. Spurs are also not out of the race just yet, though injuries and a lack of squad depth have started giving Mauricio Pochettino some headaches, which has meant that the top two are being tipped for a monumental race from here until May.

United legend Gary Neville even came up with an interesting take on the predicament of the clubs fans, saying that choosing one of their fiercest rivals to win the title was “like having a choice of two blokes to nick your wife.” And now, Jesse Lingard had to come up with some kind of response after being asked who he would like to go on and win the league from the current top three.

Addressing the gathering at a Coca-Cola and Premier League promotional event, the England international hilariously responded with: “My voice is a bit sore, I can’t answer that.”

Lingard has been a key part in the Red Devils’ revival under interim manager and club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as the Old Trafford outfit have clawed back a 11-point deficit to fourth when the Norwegian took over to sitting just two points off the top four. The academy star was also on the pitch during United’s latest victory in their unbeaten run under the new manager, as the club overcame a stiff test to beat Leicester away on Sunday, with the red-hot Marcus Rashford scoring the winner for the visitors after being out through by Paul Pogba.

Lingard also admitted that he has been having a secret battle with his close pal Rashford, which has been driving the players in their top-four push. “Marcus and me have been setting targets for each other to challenge ourselves,” he said. “I’m not going to go into the amount of numbers involved because then everyone will know.”

It has been a hard time for United fans, despite the clubs superb recent form, with respect to choosing whom they want to see win the league title come May. While they would ideally have liked none of the top three to be in the race, they will have to make peace with the fact that one of their two fiercest rivals and an upstart club from London against whom the Red Devils have enjoyed so much success may come out on top come May.
