Jesse Lingard: Manchester United 100 percent confident of beating Barcelona

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard believes his side can defeat Barcelona in their Champions League quarter-final clash.

The England international believes the Red Devils – who have already won at Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain this season – should be ‘100 percent confident of winning’ against the Spanish champions.

“It’s a new experience with more pressure but we’re ready to handle that and ready to relish these big games,” Lingard told United Review.

“I think that is where sometimes we might have lacked a little bit – in belief and confidence to think we can win this game.

“We’ve done it in the past, beaten good teams in the past, so I think, going into every game, we should be 100 percent confident of winning.

“We’ve got to believe. We’ve got to have that faith we can go even further and as far as we can in the competition.

“Anything is possible. We’ve got to believe. We have that self-confidence to go out and win games.

“I mean I enjoy the big games. We’re Manchester United so we take these big games and look at them tactically, try to find their weaknesses and go and try to exploit them.

“Like I’ve said, we take it all in and just enjoy big games and go out to play with a smile on our faces.”
