The Portuguese playmaker has nothing but praise for the English midfielder, who has been able to revive his career at the London Stadium.


Jesse Lingard is the “best player in the Premier League” right now, claims Bruno Fernandes as he lauds the Manchester United loanee for getting his “swag back”.

Lingard made the move from Man United to West Ham on loan in January after being deprived of minutes by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 28-year-old has been in sensational form ever since, scoring 10 goals and supplying three assists in his first 12 games and helping the Hammers climb up to fifth in the Premier League table.


“If you see Jesse, I think Jesse, at the moment, if you watch the last 10 games, has been top, top, top level,” Fernandes, who himself is one of the leading performers in the English top-flight this season, 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.”
