Jesse Lingard reveals secret to his West Ham form after struggling under Solskjaer

Jesse Lingard seemed a different man under former boss David Moyes at West Ham last season.

The 28-year-old had struggled for playing time under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and was looking on his way out of the club.

However, a loan move to West Ham rejuvenated his career, and the United loanee kept banging in the goals on a regular basis.

Nine goals and a further four assists in just 16 appearances for West Ham showed a man in form.

Explaining the reason for his fine form, Lingard admitted it was a run of consistent games.

“I played every game since I got there and when you play a run of games like that you get a bit of confidence. Of course, the goals came and assists as well,” Lingard told the official Manchester United website.

He then added: “The consistency is definitely a main thing. When you’re playing regular football, you’ve got to keep that consistency and keep scoring, or try and affect the game in a different way if you don’t score or assist.”
