However, former West Ham winger Trevor Sinclair has questioned whether the signing of Lingard was “necessary”, telling talkSPORT: “Talking about Jesse Lingard, I’m not so sure.
“I know David Moyes has worked with him before. He is a good player, or he has been in the past. But you look at his record; 2017/18 – 33 games and eight goals in the Premier League.
“In 18/19 he had 27 and four, then you go to 19/20 and he only played 22 games and scored one goal. So, for me, I don’t think he is necessary.”
