The Hammers are currently flying high in fourth place in the Premier League table.

We are one point ahead of fifth place Chelsea and three in front of Tottenham and Liverpool who are sitting in sixth and seventh respectively.

David Moyes’s men face a crucial game against Leicester tomorrow. A win at the London Stadium and things will be looking very rosy.

A defeat against the Foxes, however, and our top four chances will look very bleak.

If we are to crack the top four, Lingard will need to continue his exceptional form between now and the end of the season.

West Ham ace Jesse Lingard makes bullish claim ahead of run-in

The 28-year-old has racked up six goals and three assists in just eight games for the Hammers.

And Lingard seems very confident that West Ham have what it takes to make history this season. He told WHUFC.com:

“We’re brilliant, we’re moving the right direction and the team is full of confidence and all of us want to concentrate on the next game and getting the next three points and putting us into an even better position. Anything is possible, I believe. We’re going in the right direction and it’s down to us now to maintain that position and keep the performances coming. For us, obviously we like to concentrate on ourselves and showing what we can do, first and foremost. We know Leicester are a great side but the same goes for us as well. It’s 11v11 on the pitch and we back ourselves. We go into the game full of confidence and hopefully we can get the three points. We’re in really good spirits at the moment – the whole team is, to be honest.”

Lingard certainly seems in fine spirits ahead of the Leicester game.

If West Ham beat Brendan Rodgers’ side, we really will start to believe that anything is possible.

And if the Hammers do end up qualifying for the Champions League, we will owe so much to Jesse Lingard. The 28-year-old has been truly sensational since swapping Manchester United for East London in January.

Now we just have to hope that the West Ham owners do whatever it takes to sign Jesse on a permanent basis in the summer.
