Gary Lineker reacts to Jadon Sancho's Manchester United goal

Jadon Sancho is up and running. The winger now has two goals in two games, having failed to net in his first 14 Manchester United appearances.

Sancho scored a delightful goal against Chelsea after running from the halfway line, capitalising on a mistake from Jorginho.

He feinted goalkeeper Edouard Mendy and calmly slotted the ball low into the net.

Sancho’s goal gave United a crucial lead in a game in which Chelsea had the better of until that point.


Match of the Day host Gary Lineker praised Sancho’s contribution, while Gary Neville signalled his delight with the goal.

United could not hold onto the lead Sancho provided, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka giving away a penalty, allowing Jorginho to make up for his error. The game ended with a 1-1 draw.

Sancho has two goals for United now, the same figure he had at this point for Borussia Dortmund last year.

A late season surge saw him finish the season with 16 goals, and he will fancy his chances of doing the same again for United.

This followed up his goal against Villarreal, and was his first Premier League.

Sancho’s goal was the big positive for United, and it was a shame to see him substituted off.

The winger is now showing why the club paid so much money to sign him and chased him for so long.
