EPL: Lingard helps West Ham beat Aston Villa 3-1

Lingard scored twice in the Hammers' 3-1 triumph at Villa Park, with Tomas Soucek also finding the net for the visitors, and the winger revealed after the game that he already feels comfortable in Moyes' starting XI. I think he's their top scorer this season with seven goals from midfield, I think he's one who covers the most distance as well.

Jesse Lingard is pleased to have struck up an instant rapport with his new team-mates at West Ham as he marked his debut for the club with two goals to take down Aston Villa on Wednesday.

"We worked hard as a collective to get the result and we're just focused on the next game, which is Fulham on Saturday".

His second of the night snuffed out hopes of a Villa comeback after Ollie Watkins had scored for the third time in four matches to halve the deficit.

Though catastrophic, this was much better than the European Union commission's forecast of a 7.8 percent crash, made in November. But since October, the renewed spread of the coronavirus prompted governments to restrict economic activities once again.

Lingard has only made three appearances this season and not played for his country since the summer of 2019 despite being a key member of Gareth Southgate's team on their way to the 2018 World Cup semi-finals. I am never one for using that as an excuse.

"But we didn't have our usual tempo about us". While the first half was fairly evenly matched I thought we looked lethargic.

West Ham fans reacted on Twitter to the former Brentford's moment of second-half brilliance - many drooling over the £23,000-a-week star's (Spotrac) pass that opened the floodgates in the second 45.

"We are in a really good position but I would be stupid to say something different", Hammers chief, David Moyes enthused". He gave the ball away cheaply in the first half and the likes of Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek marked him out of the game easily. "You are always chasing a game, the manner of the goals disappoints me".
