Jesse Lingard’s outrageous stats show how he’s beating Man Utd star Bruno Fernandes in attack since joining West Ham

JESSE LINGARD is leading the Premier League charts since arriving at West Ham on loan.

After failing to find a place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United, the 28-year-old has rediscovered his best form with the Hammers under David Moyes this season.

His goal and assist to see off Wolves 3-2 on Monday night typified his new-found confidence and belief.

And the numbers show that, right now, no Premier League player can match him.

Since his West Ham debut on February 3 after a January window switch, only Tottenham’s Harry Kane has been involved in the same number of goal involvements.

Lingard’s six goals and three assists in eight appearances sees him with nine goal involvements.

That’s THREE more than United star Bruno Fernandes, as well as bettering Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus, Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez.

Only Harry Kane has scored more with seven, but has one fewer assist than Lingard in that time.

In terms of assists, Lingard’s three assists is the same as City’s Phil Foden and Tottenham’s Lucas Moura and Heung-Min Son.

Lingard is also proving to be efficient in front of goal, needing just 23 shots to reach nine goal involvements.

That is 17 fewer than Kane, two fewer than Leeds’ Patrick Bamford and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and one fewer than Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins.

Lingard’s sudden rise in form has come as a surprise to many having scored just five Premier League goals across the past three seasons at United.

But the midfielder is now likely to be giving England boss Gareth Southgate a selection headache ahead of this summer’s Euros.
