Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard is raring to go after making his comeback against Arsenal following a frustrating start to the season.
Lingard, who established himself as a key player for club and country last season, scored the goal for United as they twice came back from a goal down to play a 2-2 draw.
The United academy product exertions at the World Cup meant he would miss a month of football action due to a groin injury he picked up in Russia.
“We didn’t get much rest obviously in the summer after the World Cup, so coming back there’s always going to be little niggles here and there,” Lingard said, according to Sky Sports.
“Obviously it got to a point where I couldn’t carry on, so that break did me well and I am raring to go now. It was an enjoyable summer and a good season for me on a personal level last season.”
“I wanted to kickstart this season in the same form and obviously you have setbacks throughout the season, but it’s how you bounce back.”
“Everyone that came off the bench [against Arsenal] showed their fighting spirit. We’re in it as a team. We had to put on a performance for the fans and show the passion on the pitch for them.”
“There’s always pressure on people’s shoulders when it comes to Man United and it’s how you deal with the pressure.”
