The one-time England worldwide had been frozen out at Manchester United but looked sharp from the first whistle on his first Premier League start of the season, drilling in with his left and right feet (56 & 83) to take the visitors to victory at Villa Park.

Lingard, who hadn't started a league game this season, didn't need a number of matches to get his sharpness going or a couple of substitute appearances to get a feel of the game once again because he was causing havoc with and without the ball at Villa Park from the get-go.

It came in front of the watching England boss Gareth Southgate as Lingard looks to resurrect his global career. Ollie Watkins grabbed a late consolation but Dean Smith's side often struggled to handle the organised and vibrant Hammers.

Lingard's Old Trafford teammate Brandon Williams added: "That's what I am saying".

Lingard played behind Michail Antonio, and both of them immediately combined to devastating effect, with the West Ham striker turning provider for both of his goals.

Yet Villa almost grabbed the lead when Watkins planted a free header over from Matt Cash's cross.

Villa are clearly on an upward curve and progressingly rapidly after last season's mad scramble to safety on the final day at West Ham's London Stadium.

Three Lions manager Southgate would have been heartened by Declan Rice's industry while Lingard continued to impress despite his lack of game time at United.

It resulted in the light-footed playmaker scoring two well-taken goals, as the likes of Sancho, Morrison, Ian Wright, Brandon Williams and James Maddison praised him on Instagram.

Said Benrahma was found by Antonio and then delivered a brilliant pass to Tomas Soucek, who advanced into the area to drill a shot across Martinez into the bottom corner.

Tyrone Mings' acrobatic clearance stopped Antonio making it 3-0 and Watkins pulled a goal back with nine minutes left.

Lingard increased West Ham's lead in the 56th minute, with Villa's defence again exposed and outnumbered.
