After scoring his first senior goal for Manchester United during their weekend clash against West Brom, youngster Jesse Lingard is full of confidence and belief that he can become a regular selection in the first team.

Having featured in the Red devil's last seven games, the 22-year old academy graduate scored United's opener by curling the ball into the far corner in the 52nd minute.

"Yeah, it was (a dream come true). I've been a bit rash with my finishing recently but to be composed in that situation was good and I am glad it went in," Lingard told the club's website (

"I'm definitely growing in confidence. The manager has put faith in me to start some really important games so my confidence is obviously sky high," he added of coach Louis van Gaal.

"I had to work hard in training and I've got my rewards. Now I need to be consistent with my performances as I know the manager likes that from his players.

"If I can carry on like this then that will obviously be great for me.
Van Gaal also handed first team debuts to defenders Axel Tuanzebe and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson on Saturday.
