Jesse Lingard’s shocking resurgence was one of the main talking points of last season, with the 28-year-old scoring nine goals and assisting a further four in just 16 appearances for West Ham.
Lingard left Manchester United on loan at the start of 2021, having failed to make a single appearance in the Premier League during the season.
The midfielder soon rejuvenated himself, however, as he flourished in an advanced midfield role under David Moyes at the London Stadium.
Lingard has opened up on his sparkling form under the former Manchester United boss, insisting that a run in the team and staying consistent was vital.
“I played every game since I got there and when you play a run of games like that you get a bit of confidence. Of course, the goals came and assists as well,” Lingard told the official Manchester United website.
“West Ham were brilliant with me: the team, the staff, the club. They helped me get to where I am but it took a lot of hard work from my side as well.”
In addition to finding his form in the Premier League again, Lingard also earned a recall to the England set-up, making his first appearance for the Three Lions since 2019 earlier this year.
He was also included in the provisional 33-man squad for this summer’s European Championship but did not make the final 26-man pick for the tournament.
