West Ham ace Lingard: 2 whiteboards full of targets and inspirational quotes

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard has revealed he drew up a list of targets ahead of joining West Ham on-loan in January.

On joining the Hammers, Lingard revealed he wrote down a list of targets on a whiteboard in the London flat he shares with his brother and says he has already ticked-off two.

“I won't reveal them yet though!" he told the London Evening Standard. “We wrote all the games down and I've got different little things like [number of] shots and takes on, things like that.

“Another board just full of inspirational quotes and things that can get that fire in my belly. I've come here with a really good mindset and a really good focus and concentration on what I need to do. I've been obviously analysing each game, seeing where I can improve, seeing where I can get better.

“There's also words on the board, so I can look at them every day before I go to training and have a couple in my mind. It might be 'pace' or 'intensity', to name a couple. And intensity has been massive for me at West Ham. I start on the front foot, start intense and play the game quick."
