West Ham United coach, David Moyes has appreciated Jesse Lingard's efforts who has managed to get involved in more Premier League goals than other players since his Hammers debut.

Lingard

netted the opener for West Ham in Monday's 3-2 triumph against Wolverhampton which carries his team above Chelsea and in the 4th place on the table.

The 28-year-old

winger, on loan from Manchester United, has notched 6 goals and contributed 3 assists since playing his first game for the Hammers on February 3.

"We were worried about their speed, when you think about the speed Adama Traore’s got and Pedro Neto’s got, so we had a real concern about them, but I’ve got to say Jesse’s speed was there too,"

Moyes mentioned.

"He showed a bit of old-fashioned dribbling and used his speed to get away from people.

"I said to him at the end that he’s made a big difference and I don’t give praise too easily, but I certainly gave it to Jesse tonight."

The English midfielder is experiencing the career-best form having fallen out of favor at Old Trafford in recent seasons.

"It’s just consistency behind my form I think,"

Lingard

 

added.

"Obviously I hadn’t played much for the past two years, so to be playing week-in, week-out and keeping up this form is great, but the team have helped me tremendously."
