Jesse Lingard faces the Manchester United axe following his performance against Manchester City, according to a report.

Jesse Lingard is reportedly facing the Manchester United axe following his performance in Tuesday night's 3-1 home defeat to Manchester City in the EFL Cup.

The 27-year-old has only contributed one goal and one assist in 27 appearances for the Red Devils this season, while he is yet to score or provide an assist in 18 Premier League outings.

The attacker's decision to team up with super-agent Mino Raiola has allegedly angered the Red Devils, and according to The Sun, the academy product is now facing the axe at Old Trafford.

The report claims that both Solskjaer and assistant manager Mike Phelan were furious with Lingard's performance against City earlier this week, which led to him being replaced at the interval.

United's lack of options in the number 10 position has seen the Englishman pressed into action this term, but he is now seemingly facing a battle to save his career at the club.

The 20-time English champions will be looking to return to winning ways when they welcome Norwich City to Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
