The 28-year-old is clearly enjoying himself at Molineux and decided to try something spectacular at Nelson Semedo's expense.
He cushioned the ball down with his right boot for an onrushing Arthur Masuaku to hit first time.
The skill from Lingard
The finish from Fornals :clap:
West Ham are already in a commanding lead against Wolves!

Masuaku's pass then found Pablo Fornals who smashed home West Ham's second of the game.
It was a great piece of improvisation that has now helped put daylight between the two sides.
Former Manchester United striker Berbatov used the exact same skill at Old Trafford 13 years ago and it wowed fans inside Old Trafford.
Who did he do it against? West Ham United. Ironic.
Fans have reacted to Lingard's performance and they believe it could be one of the best of his entire career.
Lingard definitely thought about Berbatov when he ended up in the corner there lol.- UtdArena (@utdarena) April 5, 2021

Some where on a beach, Berbatov felt Lingard tap into the sauce https://t.co/ZHrh0aGyOy- Malandro Tonali (@leighvl) April 5, 2021
West Ham did manage to make it 3-0 prior to half-time and once again Lingard played a massive part.
It was his pass that played in Jarrod Bowen, who had only just come on for Michail Antonio, one on one with Patricio and he made no mistake.
Wolves hit back two minutes before the break through Leander Dendoncker's header.
Victory for West Ham this evening would see them move into the top four ahead of Chelsea.
