Manchester United star, Jesse Lingard is set to miss the start of the new season after testing positive for Covid-19.

The England international, 28, had featured in all three of Manchester United’s pre-season friendly fixtures but is not available for the final test against Everton on Saturday lunchtime.

Lingard joins goalkeeper Dean Henderson who is still recovering from Covid-19 after he had tested positive weeks back.
