JESSE LINGARD is locked in a social media war with Piers Morgan after the TV host and Arsenal fan gave him a savage kicking over Alexis Sanchez’s swap move to Manchester United.
Lingard uploaded a snap to Instagram of him pretending to talk on the phone to his new Red Devils team-mate before the Chilean’s move to Old Trafford was completed yesterday.

He wrote on the caption: “Hello, is that Alexis Sanchez…welcome to Manchester United. I knew you wanted to come Milly Rock with the Mandem. Manchesterunited#JLingz”.
The post could have been referring to Lingard’s celebration after scoring in United’s smash and grab 3-1 win at Arsenal in December, when he performed the dance to rap song Milly Rock.
But after seeing the post, Morgan suggested Lingard shouldn’t be so excited about Sanchez’s arrival.
He stormed: “He’s taking your place sunshine, enjoy the bench.”
