Jesse Lingard scored a brace on his West Ham United debut to help his new team pick all three points at Villa Park on Wednesday night.

 

The Manchester United striker on loan scored a double in his first Premier League game since July to help inspire the hammers to a 3-1 victory at Villa Park.

 

Lingard, who appeared for the fourth time this season after falling out of favor at Old Trafford, helped the Hammers to an expansive and positive opening that stretched the hosts.

Tomas Soucek opened the scoring as the Hammers clung on to fifth place ahead of Everton and they are now just two points behind Liverpool after the champions’ defeat to Brighton.

 

Five minutes later, a quick break from Benrahma, after Watkins fumbled on the edge of his own box, ended when Antonio touched on Lingard and beat Martinez.

 

Watkins finished off Grealish’s pass with nine minutes left to make it 2-1

 

But Lingard had the last laugh two minutes later when he teamed up again with Antonio to shoot through Martinez’s dive.
