Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard is happy seeing two of his old youth teammates making their way in the senior game.

Lingard underlined his potential by scoring an incredible four goals on his Birmingham City debut last month.

And he knows plenty about two of the Premier League's highest-rated youngsters, having grown up at United with Ravel Morrison, now of West Ham United, and Adnan Januzaj.

"I have come up with Ravel since the Under-8s and I know him very well," said Lingard.

"He made his Under-21 debut the other night and is another very good talent.

"Januzaj did very well when he played at United, so that's good to see."
