West Ham boss, David Moyes, is eager to lean on Jesse Lingard’s versatility.
Moyes is confident on-loan Manchester United midfielder will rediscover his form at West Ham.
He said: “Jesse can play from the left, from the right, or play as a 10. He played for England as a midfield player at times as an eight.
“I think if I had to, I could play him as a false nine if I needed, the way Manchester City have played quite often with no centre forwards.
“He’s 28 so still young, he’s got a young body and a young mind. Hopefully, we can get the best out of him.”
