Jesse Lingard Shares Detailed Plan From Coach That Helped Him Achieve His Goals Last Season

Jesse Lingard has given fans a fascinating insight into a detailed plan that helped him become one of the best players in the Premier League last season.

The 28-year-old arrived at West Ham with big intentions in January and, after joining on a six-month loan deal from Manchester United, the rejuvenated midfielder netted nine goals in 16 games, including a brace on his debut.

He also notched five assists during the campaign and quickly became a key player under David Moyes, helping the Hammers achieve a place in next season's Europa League group stage.

Lingard was later called up to England's 33-man squad ahead of the European Championship but after an impressive loan spell at the London Stadium, manager Gareth Southgate left him out of the updated 26-man squad.

Despite the disappointment of missing out on this summer's tournament, the Manchester United academy product can certainly look back on a successful campaign.

In fact, the midfielder has reflected on his recent form by sharing pictures of his goal-setting plan titled 'Jesse 2.0'.

The images appear to have been taken ahead of West Ham's 3-3 draw against Arsenal in March - a game in which he would score the opening goal.

As you can see in the tally below, Lingard had already bagged four goals, with his assists, take-ons and shots per game also being recorded, as well as two different sections named 'goals' and 'application'.

In the 'application' section, you can see targets such as consistency and positivity.

It also mentions being confident and having self-belief. "Don't settle for good, be great."

The plan, which appears to have been inspired by Lingard's friend and personal coach Alexandros Alexiadis, also notes that the midfielder wanted four goals and two assists before facing Arsenal - a goal he had already achieved.

In addition to the 'Jesse 2.0' sketch, the Manchester United man posted an image that contained a series of motivational words, including 'Europa League', 'get at him' and 'aggression'.

Lingard went on to caption the Instagram post: "Thank you @alexiadis_alexandros for the analysis last year and congratulations on getting your new coaching role fully deserve. Now lets get ready for the new season."

So what's next for the England international? In an interview after United's pre-season win against Derby on Sunday, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he expects Lingard to remain at Old Trafford.

"He was one of the positives," Solskjaer said.

"He's a Manchester United player and he wants to fight for his place. He's come back bright, confident and with lots of energy. I think everyone saw what he did at the end of last season with West Ham.

"He's still in my plans. I expect him at Man Utd at the start of the season."
