Manchester United youngster Jesse Lingard is hoping to feature in the League Cup this season.

Jesse Lingard has set himself the target of appearing for Manchester United in the League Cup this season.

The 19-year-old has struggled to break into the United starting lineup since he signed professional forms in 2009.

However, having impressed during pre-season, the attacker is now hoping to feature for the first team in domestic cup competitions.

"Hopefully I can stay around the first team, train with them a lot and get a shot at the Capital One Cup," he told the club's official website.

Lingard scored nine goals for United's reserves during the last campaign.
