Football news LIVE: Champions League reaction as Chelsea beat Zenit, Wilshere to Arsenal LATEST, Pele surgery UPDATES


Manchester United captain Harry Maguire defended Jesse Lingard after his costly error led to a shock Champions League defeat to Young Boys.

Maguire told MUTV: “It’s disappointing, but that’s football, people make mistakes.

“We’re not blaming Jesse, he’s tried to do the right thing but he’s left the pass short.

“Everyone makes mistakes, I’m sure every footballer who has played on that pitch today has made a mistake for a goal.

“Jesse will pick himself up and be ready to go again on Sunday.

“We don’t like losing any match, we’re disappointed with tonight, but we’ve five games to go and we’ll be looking to win the next match and pick up momentum from there”
