The Manchester United footballer says the game at Goodison Park will be very difficult, but he still believes his team can win it.

In tomorrow’s English Premier League fixture, Manchester United is set to pay a visit to Goodison Park to play against Everton.

And for footballer Jesse Lingard, the match will be very difficult, but not impossible to win.

“I think it’ll be a tough game. Both teams are fighting for something for the end of the season. It’s just as important for them as it is for us, so we’ll need to be on top form,” he told to the club’s official website.

“With the results, they’ve been having against the top-six teams, it seems like a hard place to go. But if we’re on our game, we can get the win.”

He added: “It’s up there as one of my best! I remember that goal. That was a big win, so hopefully, we can do the same at the weekend.”

“They are always enjoyable games against Everton. Goodison Park is an amazing place to play with the atmosphere and our fans behind us as well, so we need them backing us.”

“We know what’s on the line and what’s there to be had. Top four is massive, to obviously play in the Champions League next season. It’s a massive competition and United always deserve to be in there,” he declared.

“Defeats [like the Barca one] can tend to linger but we know we have a big week ahead so Ole has tried to take our minds off it and concentrate on Everton, [Manchester] City and Chelsea. They are the three big games that we need to win.”
