Robbie Savage tells Jesse Lingard to claim Luke Shaw’s Man Utd goal
Jesse Lingard is enduring a dry patch in front of goal at the minute, meaning it was no surprise to see the Manchester United midfielder try and claim Luke Shaw’s goal in their 3-0 win away at Derby last night.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men booked their place in the FA Cup quarter-finals at Pride Park, with Shaw’s strike and an Odion Ighalo brace condemning United legend Wayne Rooney to defeat against his former side.
It was Shaw who opened the scoring on the night, producing a half-volley from the edge of the box that bounced over Kelle Roos’ head and into the back of the net.

However, Lingard believes the goal should be his after replays showed the ball brushed his shoulder on its way into the net.
Shaw was having none of it after the victory, telling BT Sport: “I am claiming it! No chance, he can't claim that! Whatever happens I am claiming it.
“But the most important thing is the win and another clean sheet for the boys.

Yet the England international found himself subjected to sickening abuse from one of his own fans as he made his way onto the team bus afterwards.
In a clip that circulated on social media last night, one supporter shouts at Lingard: “F*** off, Jesse”, “Jesse, you're s***” and “you're w*** Jesse”.
