PICTURE: United Midfielder Arrives At Hospital On Crutches

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard was a surprise inclusion in Louis van Gaal’s first Premier League squad on Saturday against Swansea City at Old Trafford, a league debut that unfortunately only lasted 24-minutes after flying in to a crunching challenge with Swansea City’s Ashley Williams.

During the match, Lingard received treatment and was brave enough to continue playing before being replaced by Adnan Januzaj minutes later.

Pictured below: On Monday morning, Lingard arrived at Bridgewater Hospital in Manchester heavily bandaged up and on crutches.
