Manchester United Portuguese star Bruno Fernandes has branded Jesse Lingard “the best player in the Premier League” over the last 10 matches.
Lingard, 28, dropped in the pecking order at Old Trafford following the arrival of Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon in January 2020.
And the recently-recalled England international sought greater first-team opportunities and joined West Ham on loan in this season’s winter transfer window.
Since moving to the London Stadium, Lingard has proven a revelation and flourished under David Moyes as the club move to within touching distance sealing European football for next season.
Lingard’s future remains uncertain with just one year left on his contract at United, but Fernandes believes the talented midfielder has rediscovered his form and is currently playing the best football in the division.
“If you see Jesse, I think Jesse, at the moment, if you watch the last 10 games, has been top, top, top level,” Fernandes told MUTV.
“For me, if you watch the last 10 games, he’s been the best player in the Premier League, scoring and assists in every game.
“Everyone here is really, really happy for him. He has confidence back, he has his swag back, because he is feeling confident.
“We are really, really happy for what he’s doing.”
