Some Manchester United Fans Are Claiming Jesse Lingard is Better than Eden Hazard

Manchester United and Chelsea supporters have been bickering on social media throughout today over Jesse Lingard and Eden Hazard – with some Red Devils supporters seriously claiming Lingard is the superior player this season.

United midfielder Lingard lookes reinvented under Jose Mourinho this season in a new central role, and continued his excellent form with a goal in the 2-1 victory over West Brom at the Hawthorns yesterday.

That strike took the Englishman’s tally for the season to seven in all competitions – just one less than Hazard, who has eight for Chelsea.

But it seems Lingard’s impressive form has really taken some fans’ opinions to another level.

Hazard has been regarded as one of the world’s leading attacking midfielders for several years now, and won the Premier League Player of the Year after inspiring Chelsea to the title back in 2015.

All in all, Hazard has two Premier League titles to his name, whilst Lingard is yet to be victorious in the English top-flight.

Some onlookers have been making a fuss over the fact that Lingard’s stats are up there with Hazard’s this season, but does that really count for much? Well, apparently it does to this lot:

Lies, damned lies and statistics.

What do you think of the comparison?
