The Premier Leagues inform man Jesse Lingard is loving life at West Ham, but just how far will this run of form take him?
After making not a single appearance in the Premier League this season at Man United, Lingard looked for a move to get regular game time in the second half of the campaign. West Ham took him on loan in January and it was the best bit of business done this year.
Lingard has hit the ground running and looks like the player he was at the 2018 World Cup. He has played nine times for West Ham, scoring eight goals and assisting another four. Currently, Lingard is the most inform player in the league, hence the nickname Messi Lingard.
This return to form has changed a lot of peoples perspective on the forward. With the Euro’s this summer, could he be a late addition to the squad? And just where will he play next season? Paddy Power have a load of specials and we’re going to take a look at the ones we like!

Jesse Lingard to be in West Ham playing squad on September 4th 2021 (end of transfer window) – 1/2
Since Payet left West Ham, they have really been lacking in a creative player who is amongst the goals. Lingard has been just what they needed and a big reason in why they are challenging for the top four. He seems to be loving life at West Ham and will get a lot more playing time there, compared to at United. His club would be willing to sell him and it’s a move that seems to make sense.
Jesse Lingard to start v Croatia in England’s first game of Euro 2020 – 11/2
Lingard got himself back into the recent England squad for the World Cup Qualifiers. He has shown Gareth Southgate at previous tournaments how effective he can be and the manager likes to stick with players he knows. If Lingard keeps up this scoring run in the Premier League, it could make it very difficult for Southgate to leave him out, especially if there is an injury to someone between now and then.
Jesse Lingard to make permanent transfer to West Ham & Declan Rice to move to Man Utd in next transfer window – 6/1
Man United have been fans of Declan Rice for a while now and are looking for a deep ball-playing midfielder. David Moyes has also said that West Ham would listen to offers for Rice as he would likely demand a big fee, meaning the whole squad can be improved. This is a move that would make sense for both teams and with each club wanting the others players, this might be the only way they get them.
Jesse Lingard to score in each of West Ham’s next 5 EPL matches – 80/1
Now, this is a big ask but he is on fire at the moment. He has five in his last four games and is full of confidence. Opposition sides won’t commit a man to mark him all game and this will give him chances. At 80 it’s big odds, but a great payout should it come in!
