West Ham midfielder Declan Rice took a moment to single skipper Mark Noble out for praise with a tweet showing his appreciation.

Noble’s form has been outstanding in recent weeks and this culminated with a brace against Watford. These goals took him to second on West Ham’s Premier League top scorer list.

The 32-year-old, who recently celebrated his birthday, has had his critics in the recent past. But he has silenced them with his end of season form.

Noble is a local lad and a boyhood West Ham fan. And you can see the pure passion in his game. He plays with the same commitment that the West Ham faithful want from everyone.

Rice has been a standout performer in defensive midfield this season and his partnership with Noble is going from strength to strength.

The 20-year-old is learning a lot from his captain. And many West Ham fans think the England midfielder can take the skipper’s armband from Noble one day.

Here are some of the best tweets from West Ham fans in reply to Rice’s Twitter message to his captain Noble.
