Solskjaer praises Lingard after scoring decider against West Ham.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was overjoyed to see Jesse Lingard respond to his detractors by scoring the game-winning goal in Sunday's 2-1 victory over West Ham.

When he scored in the 89th minute of the Premier League match, the England international came off the bench to help United secure three points.

Lingard's commanding performance came just days after he was widely chastised for a blunder that proved his side's undoing in their Champions League loss to Young Boys in midweek.

Since his return from an outstanding loan spell at West Ham last season, Solskjaer has been happy with the 28-year-response old's and contribution to the Old Trafford side.

"Today was a good answer, in my opinion! Jesse has made it plain that he wants to battle for his place in a Manchester United team that is on the rise "At a news conference, he stated.

"I can't speak for Jesse right now, but he's putting in a lot of effort; he'll play on Wednesday because I'll be making a few adjustments. So happy he can manage the highs and lows so nicely." He's maturing into an excellent player."

He continued, "I'm overjoyed for Jesse; he had a difficult evening on Tuesday, but he knuckled down and kept his cool."
