Ryan Giggs slams Jesse Lingard after Manchester United’s defeat to Arsenal

first_imgRyan Giggs slams Jesse Lingard after Manchester United’s defeat to Arsenal Advertisement Giggs was unimpressed by Lingard’s performance (Picture: Premier League)Lingard failed to score a goal or provide an assist in the Premier League in 2019 and his performance at the Emirates did little to suggest that he’s turned a corner.AdvertisementAdvertisementIn contrast, Mesut Ozil had his finest game in a red shirt for some time and Giggs says the German showed Lingard how to play the no10 position.‘He’s an intelligent player and you see the difference between the two No.10s,’ said Giggs.‘Ozil, even though he has big running stats, when Arsenal had the ball he was actually holding his position. He wasn’t running towards the ball. So he was probably doing most of his running in a defensive aspect.‘Whereas Jesse, when United were on the ball, just kept coming towards the ball and closing the space. Whereas Ozil was patient. And that comes from the coach and looking at the last couple of games, because you have got a talented and intelligent individual’.More: Manchester United FCRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseEx-Man Utd coach blasts Ed Woodward for two key transfer errorsArsenal’s win means they’re just four points off Manchester United and back in the race for the top four.There was a marked improvement in the Gunners’ energy levels and Solskjaer praised Arteta’s side afterwards for being the ‘brighter’ of the two teams.MORE: Ian Wright criticises David Luiz for throwing Unai Emery under the bus after Arsenal beat Manchester United Metro Sport ReporterThursday 2 Jan 2020 9:33 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link10.5kShares Jesse Lingard continued his poor form against Arsenal (Picture: Getty)Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs accused Jesse Lingard of lacking football ‘intelligence’ after the Red Devils’ 2-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates.Goals from Nicolas Pepe and Sokratis gave Arsenal a deserved win against United, who were well below-par during a disappointing night in north London for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.United were abysmal during a despondent opening 45 minutes but Solskjaer waited until the hour-mark before making any changes.Daniel James made way for Andreas Pereira, while Mason Greenwood came on for Lingard.ADVERTISEMENT Comment Advertisementlast_img read more

Lakers coach Luke Walton praises guard Josh Hart, says he makes ‘winning plays’

first_img“He was making winning plays all over the court,” Walton said about Hart’s performance against Phoenix. “I thought it was directly related to how he played: Fighting over screens, tagging on the weak side, getting a steal when they were hurting us early in the game with those rolls to the rim, making the extra pass.“Everything we always preach about, he was doing those things, and he knocked down a couple shots, too.” Related News Lakers monitor LeBron James’ minutes to prevent ‘Cleveland all over again’ Lonzo Ball not aware of his greatness, LeBron James says The second-year player out of Villanova has averaged 9.1 points and 3.3 rebounds in 24.2 minutes per game this season. He has shot 45.7 percent from the field and 39.6 percent from 3-point range.The Lakers will host the Spurs on Wednesday. They’ll carry a 14-9 record into that matchup.center_img Hart finished the win with six points and two assists in 18 minutes on the floor. Walton said scoring is “not what’s most important” for Hart.“What’s most important is winning plays and winning games,” Walton said. “I’m sure everybody wants to score but he sure seems — lately he’s just been out there having fun, playing for the joy of trying to win. He’s put together a couple really nice games in a row for us.” Luke Walton believes Josh Hart is a difference-maker for the Lakers.The 23-year-old guard has posted inconsistent offensive numbers for Los Angeles this season. But, Walton, the third-year Lakers coach, said Hart impacts the game in ways that don’t appear on the stat sheet after his team’s 120-96 win over the Suns on Sunday.last_img read more
