West Ham fullback Cresswell: Lingard has been fantastic here

West Ham fullback Aaron Cresswell has hailed the impact made by Jesse Lingard.

The Manchester United midfielder has been outstanding since arriving on-loan in January.

Cresswell said, "Jesse has been fantastic. You just need to look in the short space of time he's been here, his stats speak for that - his goals and assists in such a short time.

"I knew Jesse was a very good player, I played with him at England a few years back. He just hasn't had the luck the last few years at Man United and didn't really get any game time. As they say: class is permanent.

"He's certainly come back and looks in fantastic shape and he's back in the England squad. He's been a fantastic addition to our squad."
