Man United Star Bruno Fernandes Calls Jesse Lingard The 'Best Player In The Premier League' Right Now

Bruno Fernandes has praised Manchester United teammate Jesse Lingard as the "best player in the Premier League" after his terrific form at West Ham.

Lingard arrived on loan at the Hammers in January after struggling with his United form and failing to establish himself as a regular under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But the 28-year-old England international has thrived at the London Stadium and had a career rival under former Red Devils manager David Moyes.

Lingard has made 13 appearances in the Premier League for West Ham and scored nine times and registered four assists as the Hammers sit six points outside of the top four.

The United loanee's sensational form could even land him a place back in Gareth Southgate's England squad ahead of this summer's Euro 2020.

Fernandes has hailed Lingard's major improvement in form as he admitted everyone at United is "really, really happy for him."

The 26-year-old Portuguese midfielder told United's official website: "If you see Jesse, I think Jesse, at the moment, if you watch the last 10 games, has been top, top, top level.

"For me, if you watch the last 10 games, he's been the best player in the Premier League, scoring and assists in every game.

"Everyone here is really, really happy for him. He has confidence back, he has his swag back, because he is feeling confident. We are really, really happy for what he's doing."

The West Ham star's long-term future at Old Trafford remains uncertain as his current United deal will expire in 2022.

According to reports, Lingard has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Inter Milan after his career resurgence at West Ham.
