Lingard came off the bench to net the Red Devils' second goal at the London Stadium, where the England international had spent the second half of last season on loan.

After hitting the back of the net on Sunday, the 28-year-old, who netted nine goals in 16 games for the Hammers during the abovementioned loan spell, opted not to celebrate in front of the London club's supporters, which former Red Devils striker Michael Owen did not agree with.

"The finish is absolutely sublime. The only thing that is poor about the whole scenario is that he doesn't celebrate," Owen told Premier League Productions, as per the Daily Mirror.

"I can't believe players don't celebrate when they score a goal against their old club, he was only there two minutes.

"If he didn't want to score, if he's not that happy, don't pull the trigger, pass the ball, if that's the case.

"It's the only thing that lets him down there, because everything else is absolutely spectacular."
