Manchester United stars have been attempting the latest craze in football – the Dele Alli celebration.

Now England team-mate Jesse Lingard has been filming United’s players trying to do the celebration after training – with reports that Alli actually got the idea off Lingard.

And the hand gesture, which some people have been able to copy easily and others have struggled with, has baffled some members of the United squad, while others are able to nail it straight away.

Summer signing Fred was one of those who struggled with the celebration, while Diego Dalot, Paul Pogba, Ashley Young and Eric Bailly all nailed it.

Summer signing Fred could not master the celebration
Paul Pogba was a natural
Ashley Young wasted no time in getting it right
Youngster Diogo Dalot showed he could do it too
Nemanja Matic was another successful player
