Bruno Fernandes showed his support for Manchester United team-mate Jesse Lingard by publicly congratulating him for his late winner against West Ham.

Lingard had been under intense scrutiny and received severe criticism for his horror back-pass that led to United’s 2-1 defeat against Young Boys in their Champions League opener on Tuesday.

But the England international dramatically redeemed himself after coming off the bench and curling a shot into the top-right corner of Lukasz Fabianski’s goal in the 89th minute to snatch a 2-1 victory at the London Stadium.

United, who needed further heroics from goal-keeper David de Gea to save an injury-time penalty from Mark Noble, remain unbeaten in the Premier League and are third in the table.

After the match, Lingard posted a photo of himself celebrating with his United team-mates and wrote: ‘Thats (sic) football, thank you for the warm reception today’. 

Fernandes, who is one of the players congratulating Lingard in the photo, responded to Lingard’s post, writing: ‘You deserve it bro’.

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also praised Lingard’s goal and attitude in response to the Young Boys defeat.

‘He said sorry after Tuesday and everyone said that’s not necessary. He came on (today) and was brilliant,’ Solskjaer said. 

‘It was a great goal. I’m so happy for Jesse. Of course, he had a tough evening on Tuesday, but he’s knuckled down and has worked hard again. 

‘He’s been the same bright, positive lad, and what a goal.’
