Lingard in top 1%!

Jesse Lingard’s unbelievable form at West Ham puts him in the top 1% of players in Europe’s top five leagues!

The attacking midfielder has been genuinely brilliant since his loan move from Man United.

He scored again at the weekend, a rasping drive from the edge of the box that slammed into Arsenal’s top corner.

So good has he been, he’s back in the England squad and he has emerged as one of the best attacking midfielders in England once again.

FBRef are a stats website that compile all of the most detailed statistics on a player and Lingard’s numbers are nothing short of incredible!

The 28-year-old has a record of 0.87 non penalty goals per game, which is worked out as an average, and that places him in the top 1% of players in Europe, across the Premier League, the Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A, and Ligue 1.

He’s also in the top 10% for pressures – when a player closes down another player on the ball – and the top 11% for total shots.

FBRef also carry a player comparison list, and Lingard is said to be just as good as Manchester City’s brilliant Phil Foden, Leicester’s key playmaker James Maddison and Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford.

What a player we’ve got here!
