Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard hopes to see Cup action tomorrow against Newcastle United.

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard hopes to see Cup action tomorrow against Newcastle United.

After scoring his first reserve-team goal of 2012/13 in last week's Manchester Senior Cup win over Bury, the 19-year-old is keen to become the latest homegrown talent to appear for the senior side.

"There will probably be some younger lads involved against Newcastle and we’ll have to wait and see if the boss calls me up," Lingard told ManUtd.com. "Hopefully he will."

If selected, Lingard would relish the opportunity to play with some established first-team stars.

"You need the experience of the older players to be there with you and help you along the way," he added.

"Newcastle are a strong team as well, so it should be a good game."
