Former Manchester United striker, Michael Owen, has criticized midfielder, Jesse Lingard, for not celebrating his excellent late wins against West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday.

Lingard, a former West Ham player, came off the bench for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side at the London Stadium with 17 minutes to go to curl a sublime 89th-minute winner for the Red Devils as the match ended 2-1.

The 28-year-old refused to celebrate his goal, but Owen believes he should have passed the ball to his teammate if he didn’t want to score against West Ham.

Cristiano Ronaldo had scored for the visitors, while Said Benrahma netted for the Hammers.

“The finish is absolutely sublime,” Owen told Premier League Productions.

“The only thing that is poor about the whole scenario is that he doesn’t celebrate.

“I can’t believe players don’t celebrate when they score a goal against their old club, he was only there two minutes.

“If he doesn’t want to score if he’s not that happy, don’t pull the trigger, pass the ball, if that’s the case.

“It’s the only thing that lets him down there because everything else is absolutely spectacular.”
