Man Utd forward Lingard: I'm getting older, I need more goals

Man Utd forward Jesse Lingard says that he has reached that stage of career where it's imperative for him to add more goals to his game.

Lingard is turning 25 in December, and he admits that he no longer can be considered a youth product. The Englishman has managed just one league goal in 25 appearances for United this season.

"I think 25, 26, 27 are the peak years. That's when you start kicking on and you take all the past experiences into your game and learn from them," said Lingard.

"That process carries on, taking experiences into the next season, and, while you're still learning, you can just carry on working hard."

"I need to score more goals," he added. "All that will come, hopefully next season or the season after.

"Sometimes you've got to be in the right position at the right time and hopefully the ball will drop to me."
