After a successful loan spell at West Ham, the English midfielder headed back to Manchester United as he saw his side relegated from League cup on Wednesday.

With courtesy of a 9th-minute opener from Lanzini, 

the Hammers secured a 1-0 League Cup victory at Old Trafford

 to proceed to the next round of the tournament.

Prior to the game, Jesse Lingard has been told that he acts differently as a Manchester United player to how he did when on loan at West Ham while the Hammers captain Mark Noble jokes that the Red Devils midfielder was "diving" and "screaming" during a Carabao Cup tie on Wednesday.

 

With one penalty appeal on 

Lingard

 waving away in the first half, Noble claims his former team-mate was more theatrical in midweek than he ever was in the capital.

Noble told 

Sky Sports

"That’s football, he dived and I told him off for screaming, funnily enough he didn’t really do it at our place but he does it here!"

Heaping praise on Lingard, Noble added: 

"We had a laugh on the pitch today, I love Jesse. He’s a great character and I’m so pleased he’s come here and getting his chance.

"He’s scored some fantastic goals, obviously the one against us was hurtful, he’s a great lad and he deserves everything he gets."

 

Entering the final year of his contract at Old Trafford, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has handed Lingard five outings this season across Premier League, Champions League, and Carabao Cup competition.
