📷 Jesse Lingard: Match Snapshot

Lingard was deployed through the centre by David Moyes from the outset of the game and from the very beginning he looked confident, running the game for the visiting side.

⏱️ 56' Picked out by Michail Antonio on the left side of the penalty box, Lingard gathers possession and fires a powerful strike that is too much for Emi Martinez to cope with.

⏱️ 83' Lingard gets his second of the game, albeit with a little help from the home goalkeeper. Just moments after Villa have hauled themselves back in the game, again he is teed up by Antonio, though his shot from just inside the box should have been saved.

Lingard: What Next?

Earning regular game time is the next challenge for Lingard, although this debut to remember should mean that is not too much of a problem. Indeed, he can surely look forward to a big role in the Hammers' next encounter, which is against Fulham on Saturday.
