Maguire sends message to Jesse Lingard after costly error against Young Boys

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire has insisted that nobody is blaming Jesse Lingard after his error led to a late Young Boys winner on Tuesday night.

Manchester United were in action in the Champions League on Tuesday, with their opener against Swiss side Young Boys ending in a shock defeat after Jordan Siebatchu snatched a late winner to give the Swiss giants a famous win over United.

The goal resulted from a costly error from substitute Jesse Lingard, after his careless backpass was pounced on by Siebatchu, who was able to place the ball beyond the reach of onrushing de Gea.

United had led the match through a Cristiano Ronaldo goal in the 13th minute, but the match gave another turn after defender Aaron Wan Bissaka was shown a straight red card 10 minutes before half time.

After the break, Young Boys made their numerical advantage count as they pressed high and searched for an equaliser, limiting United to few chances. Their equaliser came as expected as Moumi Ngamaleu scored from close range after a fine cross from the right wing before Siebatchu secured the win later on in injury time.

Jesse Lingard and United will be hoping to put that behind them, as they would now focus on their premier league clash with Lingard's former side West Ham United this weekend.

With the win over United, Young boys are currently top of group F after Villarreal and Atalanta played out a 2-2 draw.
