Shocking footage showed Manchester United fans subjecting Jesse Lingard to a torrent of abuse as he boarded the team bus after their 3-0 FA Cup win at Derby.
One United supporter was even stand accused of racially abusing Lingard with several Twitter observers claiming they heard the N word shouted in the video.
It is not yet entirely clear if everyone involved were all United fans and how many people were hurling abuse towards Lingard.
Lingard’s team-mate Luke Shaw appeared by the bus door to furiously remonstrate with the fans after hearing the expletives and insults as they left Pride Park on Thursday evening.
‘Jesse, you’re s***, Jesse you’re w***. Jesse you’re s***, Jesse f*** off,’ one fan was heard screaming in the video which is circling online.

Some fans on Twitter alleged they heard one person shouting a racial slur.
Hundreds of Twitter users commented on the video with one writing: ‘They are even saying the N word just because Jesse isn’t playing well. This is disturbing and vile.’
It comes just one day after Tottenham star Eric Dier astonishingly confronted a supporter after his brother Patrick took exception to the midfielder being insulted during their shock FA Cup exit against Norwich.
In the video posted to Twitter, one fan was heard pointing out that Lingard, who has struggled for form since the 2018 World Cup, had failed to register a single goal or assist for United last year in one of several verbal attacks on the player.
Sportsmail has contacted United for comment.

Lingard suffered alleged racial abuse along with his team-mate Fred from Manchester City supporters during United’s derby victory back in December.
Speaking about that incident in the immediate aftermath, Lingard said: ‘Not even this idiot can ruin tonight’s feeling, shameful behaviour, it may be the derby but there is never ever a reason to be racist!’
Lingard has rarely featured for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in recent weeks amid a long run of poor performances but played the full 90 minutes of Thursday night’s FA Cup victory.
The 27-year-old had a hand in United’s opener with replays looking like Shaw’s volley had come off of his back, although the goal was eventually awarded to the defender.
