The finish had former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku stunned for words.
It has worked out for United and Lingard, but I still don’t see a way back to Old Trafford for the England midfielder.

Firstly, he needs to ensure that he picks up from this campaign because there will be an array of European clubs fighting for his signature when the season concludes.
Lingard also provided an assist for West Ham’s third goal which was enough to see off Wolves.
The Hammers are now fourth, ahead of Chelsea, Liverpool, and Tottenham. Can they stay put with eight games remaining?
Former United striker Romelu Lukaku was stuck for words after seeing Lingard’s goal on Monday night.
