Lingard was incensed and Gomez, who was the next player to touch the ball, was on the receiving end of a hefty challenge from Lingard which sparked a scuffle on the pitch.

Sending off yes – but what about the Wigan player who pushed Lingard with two hands aggressively isn’t raising your hands a sending off offence?

Could do with a bit of steel in our midfield at the moment , the way we are playing at the moment we are so light weight
