Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would like to see Jesse Lingard, who is on loan at West Ham, continue his brilliant form until the end of the season and win a place in England’s European Championship squad.

“I hope he goes to the Euros, with his performances now, with the confidence he’s got, I don’t think that’s beyond him,” Solskjaer said.

“I hope he has a strong finish to the league.

“It was different here [with] Bruno [Fernandes and] the form he’s played in, arguably in Jesse’s favourite position, and that was just a decision that we’ve made.

“Delighted, though, for Jesse and just wish him all the best for the rest of the season until he comes back.”
