Cape Town - Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard says he's ready to discover his best form having overcome a groin injury that kept him out for a few weeks.

The England international has been used sparingly in recent matches but sprung to life off the bench in the 2-2 draw with Arsenal last time out.

Lingard scored the final goal of the game at Old Trafford to rescue his side a point, and now says he is ready to push on.

Speaking after his recent heroics, the 25-year-old said: "We didn't get much rest obviously in the summer after the World Cup, so coming back there's always going to be little niggles here and there.

"Obviously it got to a point where I couldn't carry on, so that break did me well and I am raring to go now. It was an enjoyable summer and a good season for me on a personal level last season.

"I wanted to kick-start this season in the same form and obviously you have setbacks throughout the season, but it's how you bounce back.

"Everyone that came off the bench [against Arsenal] showed their fighting spirit. We're in it as a team. We had to put on a performance for the fans and show the passion on the pitch for them.

"There's always pressure on people's shoulders when it comes to Man United and it's how you deal with the pressure."
