The Hammers earned a vital three points against Wolves.

David Moyes’s men made hard work of it though!

West Ham were 3-0 up inside 38 minutes but we were pegged back to 3-2 with 25 minutes still to play. It felt like it was Arsenal all over again!

The Hammers held out in the end, however, and we are now sitting pretty in fourth spot in the table.

We owe the three points to Jesse Lingard. The 28-year-old Manchester United owned ace was in quite simply brilliant form.

Lingard scored an absolutely brilliant solo goal inside the first five minutes. He then worked his magic down the left hand side before laying the ball off to Arthur Masuaku who subsequently set up Pablo Fornals to make it 2-0.

Jesse was at it again in the 38th minute, beating a whole host of Wolves players before slipping Jarrod Bowen through on goal and the 24-year-old buried his chance.

 

Lukaku was mightily impressed by Lingard:

Lingard has been sensational since joining West Ham.

He has six goals and three assists to his name in just eight games for the Hammers so far.

It will be vital for David Moyes to sign him permanently from Manchester United in the summer.

Despite our desperate need for at least one new centre-forward, it could be argued that our priority is actually tying up the Lingard deal.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that it happens!
