Ander Herrera has urged Manchester United team-mate Jesse Lingard to continue hammering away at goal in order to make the most of his current flying form.
The 25-year-old has bagged seven goals in his last nine appearances in all competitions, including one in the New Year’s Day win over Everton, and Herrera has called on the striker to keep his foot on the gas as United go in search of silverware.
“It’s fantastic - when you are like that he has to keep trying to shoot, shoot, shoot,” Herrera said.
”I am not in that moment... I shot three times and I didn’t score but I will keep looking for that moment. Jesse has it now. He has to keep trying to shoot but the movements he does for the team are also amazing.
“He’s very quick at the moment as well. No one can catch him. He wants to improve, he wants to be a fantastic player. You can see in every training session and he’s showing it in the games.”
