No. He's injured. Apparently out for several weeks. Not sure if the nature of his injury has been announced. He wasn't in the training pics either the day after the Newcastle game or the pre-PSG training pics.

He was on the bench for the Spurs match but not the Newcastle game. I assume he got injured in training prior to the Newcastle game.

Elanga and Chong before were way too far from the first team for us to afford selling Lingard. Like someone said he could still do a job. If injuries come and we need a rest and need to win games, Lingard won´t be that big downgrade and is good system player, runs well, can press and that can help us maintain shape, youngsters can´t do that with way lower fitness levels. On top of that who knows maybe jesse can hit another purple patch in which he outperformed star players like alli for a while. Homegrown player who won´t cause a havoc for not playing. I don´t see why that is a problem to have him around untill this season. We will definitely use him even this one but for the next one. Chong could be ready to feature more and provide what Lingard does now, Elanga ready to have his breakthrough season if he stays fit, Pellistri or Traore in the mix too.

Next season he´s off but until that we have needed options and fill the gaps..
Chong ain’t getting game time on his loan

.. And I can't wait for the time when we split with Lingard.

So even Raiola can't get him a decent contract elsewhere? :lol:

Where is he at the moment? Injured still? Personal problems?
Seems to have disappeared totally out of it.
