West Ham ace Declan Rice said Leeds’ playing style is crazy good, when speaking to the club’s official YouTube account on Friday night.
The Hammers beat the Whites 2-1 at Elland Road. And we are now sitting pretty in fifth spot in the Premier League table.
In fairness to West Ham, the scoreline ended up flattering Leeds.
Not many people expected the Hammers to dominate the Whites and outplay them so convincingly.
Marcelo Bielsa has worked wonders since taking over at Elland Road. And Leeds are now considered to be one of the most exciting teams to watch in the Premier League.
David Moyes outfoxed the Argentine on Friday night, however. The boys from the London Stadium were on top form and the Leeds players didn’t have an answer.
Declan Rice did point out just how good the west Yorkshire club are, however, when speaking to the club’s official YouTube account on Friday night:
“We knew how good they were. They are a new team to the Premier League, They play unbelievable football. Their style of play, how they follow you around, is crazy.”
Leeds have become well renowned for giving teams the runaround over the past couple of years.
And that makes West Ham’s 2-1 win on Friday night all the more impressive.
A win against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night could take us up into the top four.
And David Moyes deserves huge credit for the manner in which he has transformed the Hammers since taking over at the London Stadium this time last year.
