Jesse Lingard admits he struggled with consistency issues at Manchester United.

The 28-year-old has enjoyed an excellent start to his loan spell with West Ham United, having joined the club in January.

And Lingard bears no grudges against the Red Devils after admitting he failed to perform on a consistent basis.

"I'm obviously really enjoying my football and I've settled in really well and the lads have taken to me really well," Lingard told West Ham's website.

"I've come here to play football week-in, week-out and that's what I'm doing. Playing football makes me happy and when we win and play like we did on Sunday [when Lingard scored in a 2-1 victory over Tottenham], nothing can top that.

"It's about doing it consistently and that's maybe where I've struggled before, doing it consistently in games, but I can feel now I'm coming to an age where I can keep that consistency and focus and concentration coming into games and playing games week-in, week-out which I haven't been used to."
