United came from behind to win the game 2-1 and homeboy Jesse Lingard once again proved to be the trump card for the manager. After coming on in the second half for Anthony Martial, Lingard took just 11 minutes to put his name on the scoresheet with a neatly placed header. The English International then decided to match his goal up with a world-class celebration.
Those who follow Lingard will know very well that the Manchester lad has this habit of coming up with unique and exciting celebrations.
JLingz, as he is fondly called by his teammates, made the dap somewhat famous among footballing fans when he used to perform it with his teammate and buddy Paul Pogba.
Then came the moment when he did the famous Milly Rock celebration against Arsenal.
But this time it seems that Lingard has outdone himself once again.
The 25-year-old decided to pay tribute to Marvel’s latest blockbuster by doing a Black Panther celebration.
And fans have been going crazy about the celebration.

The win against Chelsea was a crucial one for Manchester United as they retained the second spot on the table – successfully fending off Liverpool’s challenge.
But with Liverpool winning handsomely yesterday the gap between both the clubs have come down to just 2 points.
Manchester United hit the road next week as they travel to take on Crystal Palace on Monday night.
