Jesse Lingard's Highlights Against Sheffield United Show He Is Playing With Real Confidence

Jesse Lingard's Highlights Against Sheffield United Show He Is Playing With Real Confidence

Jesse Lingard's highlights against Sheffield United will very much please Manchester United fans.

After a sensational two-goal debut against Aston Villa, the 28-year-old produced another superb showing in his loan spell at West Ham as they ran out 3-0 winners and moved up to fifth in the Premier League.

Declan Rice, Issa Diop and Ryan Fredericks were all on target but it was Lingard who shone brightest for David Moyes' side.

This was just his third appearance for the Hammers but he looks to have settled in incredibly quickly, linking up with the likes of Jarrod Bowen and Manuel Lanzini.

With his direct dribbling and movement in pockets, he was a constant menace for Sheff United and won the first-half penalty that set the hosts on their way.

Lingard desperately wanted to take it himself and have the chance to score his third goal in as many games for his new club but reluctantly allowed Rice to do the business from 12 yards before celebrating with the skipper.

In a recent interview, Lingard explained he had a period of reflection during lockdown and worked tirelessly to try and get back into the United team.

It didn't quite happen for him in Manchester but he's now starring in East London.

He told BT Sport: "During the lockdown I recapped my best moments playing football - the season under Jose [Mourinho] where I scored all of those goals and went to the World Cup and the season when Ole came in and I started well.

"So I started recapping a lot of games to see where I did well, getting that fire in my belly and drive again to go and kick on because it would have been easy for me to fall off and take the easy option out. But a person like me who's been through a lot and knows the game, I can't just give it up like and I'll always go out with a fight.

"I came back one of the strongest and fittest [at United] after the [first] lockdown and I didn't get my chance that I was waiting on but the whole time I was there and not playing I was doing extra training and keeping on top of my fitness for when the time was right.

"So for me it's about working hard and staying dedicated and I went back to basics."
