"All this week we were focusing this game because we wanted to win and get three points".
The problem that the youngster - who earns £50,000 per week as salary, according to The Daily Star - is facing at United is that there is competition for places in Jose Mourinho's side.
Echoing this sentiment was Marouane Fellaini who believes that everything is possible in the Premier League and he has complete faith in Manchester United's ability.
"We lost so many chances and Joe Hart made important saves".
He used the opportunity to have a dig at his critics but accepted that his team should have scored more with their first-half dominance. "You've got to start raising your own game". And he insists the 25-year-old is often the subject of unfair criticism.
He added: "I think he is dealing very well with the pressure".
"But it's a team game and it's up to everybody to pull together". "They are players who are in the elite of football and have won everything". I'm happy and I'm looking forward to playing more and more.
One player who has carried his form from the tournament in Russian Federation into the new campaign is Romelu Lukaku. He now faces a three game ban for the incident.
"No, no", the United midfielder said.
After a one-year extension was agreed in January, Mourinho's current contract isn't set to expire until the end of the 2019/20 season.
'We lost at home, the fans were unbelievable to the team, the team understood that the direction was good, the result was bad.
"Lingard did well in terms of goals last season, getting into double figures, and it can't all fall on Lukaku". The "third season syndrome" has seemed to strike the former Chelsea boss and things are only going downhill for the 55 year old since the start of this summer, including the pre-season.
