Jesse Lingard leaves game due to injury

Aug 16, 8:16 AM

Jesse Lingard picked up a knock midway through the first half of Manchester United's Premier League opener against Swansea City and he was replaced by Adnan Januzaj in the 24th minute.

Lingard was making his first competitive Premier League appearance and while he was able to play for a few minutes after a 50-50 tackle with Swansea's Ashley Williams, manager Louis van Gaal decided to go with the fitter legs of Januzaj.
