Jesse Lingard has made a flying start to his career at West Ham United, after scoring two goals in his debut game for the Hammers.

The Englishman is however, not expected to play for the Hammers on Tuesday when they face Manchester United in the FA Cup.

This is because of the law that prohibits players from playing against their parent clubs when they’re loaned to another side.

Lingard is also cup-tied, having already made an appearance for Man United in the FA Cup, against Watford.

Jesse Lingard joined West Ham last month, on a six month loan deal, and will be there, all things being equal, until the end of the season.
