Watch Jesse Lingard dribble from inside own half to score goal of the season contender in West Ham's clash with Wolves

JESSE LINGARD scored a stunning goal to give West Ham the lead at Molineux and continue his resurgence.

The on-loan star dribbled from his own half before firing low past Rui Patricio in clinical style.

Lingard, 28, picked up the ball just shy of the halfway line and weaved past two Wolves defenders on his driving run.

And his finish was just as sublime as well, giving Patricio no chance in the Wolves net.

Some fans on social media even likened his run to one that Barcelona great Lionel Messi would make.

One fan wrote: "Please tell me who is this? Maradona, Messi or Lingard!"

Another said: "Lingard left his comfort zone, took a new challenge and is banging in mad goals at West Ham. Back in the England squad too and scoring goals that Messi and Maradona would have been proud of. Mans on fire!"

And one more post read: "Jesse Lingard has just gone full Lionel Messi there. What an unbelievable solo goal."

Lingard has made a flying start to his loan spell from Manchester United.


He has a better goals and assist record than club legend Paulo Di Canio and earned an England call-up last week.

Lingard didn't make a single Premier League appearance this season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer before moving on loan to West Ham.

But he's hit the target six times now for David Moyes' high-flying Hammers.
