Jesse Lingard costs fans £500 after missed penalty but quickly reimburses them

Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard starred in the Red Devils' 3-1 win over Arsenal on Friday night but unfortunately could not repeat his heroics on the set of Soccer AM on Saturday morning.

Lingard scored United's second goal in their FA Cup fourth round win over the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium but missed from the penalty spot on Soccer AM, costing AFC Wimbledon Fans £500 in the process.

However, the England international quickly made amends for his miss and offered the Wimbledon fans in attendance £600.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised Lingard for his ability to rise to the big occasions after Friday's win and he insisted that he's a player that he's going to look after during the reign with the club.

"Jesse’s a big game-player," Solskjaer said following the victory at the Emirates. "He’s shown that for England, for us. He always pops up with goals, was it last year counter-attack goal against Arsenal?

"So Jesse is someone we never, never hesitate to put in a Man United team and he’s been brought through this system, he knows what this means, he knows the club, he knows this history, he knows all the counter-attacking goals we’ve scored against Arsenal. He knows everything about the club and he’s someone we’ll look after."
