Lingard says Man Utd away fans key for West Ham trip

Jesse Lingard says Manchester United's away fans will be key for Sunday's clash at West Ham.

Although surely guaranteed a warm reception at the London Stadium, Lingard's focus is, naturally, purely on helping the Reds take the points and stretching the record string of games without defeat on the road to 29 games.

"Away games can be tough but having the fans there backing us, week in and week out, always helps us and gives us that boost. They're brilliant," said Lingard to

"Obviously, it's down to us on the day to perform and get the three points and we've done tremendously in the league away trips recently.

“I think it's always good to start on the right foot, to remain positive and get the results in early, scoring lots of goals. The fans have been brilliant. We missed playing in front of fans and they have been a huge help.

“Even though I was not involved in the Leeds game, the atmosphere was just unreal. When Ronny [Cristiano Ronaldo] came back the other day, Old Trafford was bouncing. I'd never experienced it like that before, to be honest. I know the fans can really help and I think they have done.

"The next few games are going to be tough, but we have got the strength and depth in the squad to win the games and get the three points in all of them."
