- Jesse Lingard's only goal of the season had an effect on a Liverpool fan
- The Man United striker scored his side's second goal in the 2-0 win on the final day
- Lingard has only managed to score in the Europa League and the FA Cup this season
Jesse Lingard’s last minute goal against Leicester City on the final Premier League matchday spoilt a Liverpool's fan season-long bet.
Antony Johnson was just seconds away from pocketing £135.30 from a £3.30 bet he made almost a year ago about the England striker not scoring for United in the league this season.
Lingard's campaign with the Red Devils this season has been his worst since he broke into the senior team from the youth squad.
And the 27-year-old only managed to score one goal in the Europa League and the FA Cup this season.
With things looking like the Englishman will not register a goal in the Premier League, Johnson placed a bet on a 40/1 odds against the attacking midfielder.
But in what looked like United final kick of the game against the Foxes, Kasper Schmeichel made a blunder as Lingard stole the ball and put it it into the back of the net.
Johnson was anticipating his bet will earn him something huge as he wrote on Twitter alongside a screenshot of the bet: “Lingard making me sweat tonight. 36 down, 2 to go.”
With few minutes added the 90, Johnson tweeted again: “Hahahahaha it’s going to happen isn’t it!!! Good luck @JesseLingard.”
But a gesture of goodwill, it appears that bookies Paddy Power paid out the winnings anyway to Johnson but the Liverpool fan insisted he could not accept the money and donated it the Black Lives Matter UK charity.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Paul Pogba has given a massive hint to Man United fans that he will still be a Red Devil shortly after their win at Leicester City.
United secured a top-four finish in the Premier League and booked their place in next season's Champions League.
It took second half goals from Bruno Fernandes and Jesse Lingard to get the better of the Foxes at the King Power Stadium.
