Aston Villa vs. West Ham United - Football Match Report

Aston Villa's Tyrone Mings stands dejected

David Moyes has called for patience with new West Ham loan signing Jesse Lingard, but feels the England global can get back to his best at the London Stadium.

West Ham United produced a sparkling away performance to beat Aston Villa on Wednesday night by three goals to one - and Hammers fans have drooled over a moment of second-half brilliance from Said Benrahma.

"I couldn't really say what went wrong for him at Manchester United but when he played for England he was energetic, he always had energy and it wasn't too long ago he was part of the England squad. Hopefully we can get the best out of him".

West Ham: Fabianski (7), Coufal (8), Dawson (7), Ogbonna (6), Cresswell (7), Fredericks (8), Rice (7), Soucek (8), Lingard (9), Benrahma (8), Antonio (8). "I have come here to get game time and scored two goals but. three points is the most important".

"He made the team better tonight".

"The team have been great with me, I have settled in fairly quickly and some familiar faces help".

"He has played for the biggest club in the world so if he can rediscover his form, I feel he could be the one where other teams are scratching their head thinking, 'why didn't we sign Lingard?'"

"In training we have that connection and built it up fairly quickly". "I want to breed a new West Ham and that has to be that we do things correctly".

Tomas Soucek opened the scoring just after the half-time break, before January recruit Jesse Lingard scored on his debut - though Emi Martinez will have been disappointed that he failed to keep the left-footed effort out.

The home side had an off day and Dean Smith will be demanding a strong reaction from his players next time out.
