Manchester United fans have found themselves singing the praises of Jesse Lingard once again following another starring performance on Sunday.
The England international has been rejuvenated since joining West Ham on loan in January, securing a long-awaited rise back into Gareth Southgate’s set-up ahead of the European Championships this summer.
Two goals from Lingard in West Ham’s clash against fellow European football chasers Leicester City took his tally with the Hammers to eight goals and four assists in nine Premier League appearances.
Now established as one of the Premier League’s most in-form players, Lingard is leading West Ham’s drive for a surprise spot in the top-four and potentially into the Champions League next season.
Lingard’s form has been a talking point amongst United fans ever since he found his feet in east London, with questions being asked as to why that sort of form was not seen at United.
Having not found a spot in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side, Lingard is now a key player for David Moyes’ Hammers and has starred in his displays.
Following his latest haul of two goals, plenty of United fans took to social media to hail the performance of their academy graduate.
Lingard’s remarkable form has seen him score or contribute an assist in almost all of his appearances for the Hammers, with the exception being a goalless draw against Fulham in his second game for the club.
Having found the net against Leicester, Lingard has now scored in each of his last four Premier League appearances stretching back to the victory against Leeds United at the start of March.
Due to the terms of his agreement with Manchester United, Lingard was not able to feature against his former side last month as Solskjaer’s side emerged as 1-0 victors.
