Jesse Lingard Was Desperate To Take West Ham's Penalty - Even 'Argued' With Declan Rice
Jesse Lingard is so full of confidence at West Ham United, he had a minor argument with captain Declan Rice over penalty taking responsibilities vs Sheffield United.
The on-loan Manchester United man opened his Hammers account on his debut with two goals vs Aston Villa and he's keen to add to his tally.
Lingard won the penalty late in the first half and Rice had the ball ready to step up - but Lingard was desperate to take over.
Both players exchanged words before Rice took his spot kick to give West Ham the lead. They then shared a hug and little chat during the celebrations.
West Ham finally have their penalty :eyes:
Jesse Lingard wasn't overly-happy to let Declan Rice do the honours, but was the first to congratulate the West Ham star after he puts it away :raised_hands:

Nice to get an actual penalty. Very well taken from Rice, can't help but feel for Lingard there.
Started the move, won the penalty and not being able to take it, yet one of the first over to Rice when he converted.
That's the sort of player we want around.

Lingard has been the best player on the pitch so far by a mile, hope we make him a permanent at the end of the season if he continues this form ⚒

Jesse Lingard is an absolute touch of class
Rarely chooses the wrong option, & adds such needed pace to the side.
Genuinely enjoy watching him
