Life without Dec quite simply doesn’t bear thinking about. And because of that, Moyes needs to make it his priority to keep the England international at West Ham.


David Moyes delivers verdict on West Ham ace Declan Rice after Everton win

The Hammers star seems to have reached an entirely new level this season – and that’s saying something!

Moyes spoke to reporters yesterday and was effusive in his praise of Declan Rice, as quoted by Football.London:

“It would be very hard to say how good he was. He was excellent. For me he was head and shoulders above everybody on the pitch today, he passed it, took control, wanted the ball, received the ball and tried to create opportunities. He did the dirty bits in the game when he had to do so but also had a great air of control and poise when he was on the ball. So I don’t know if I could not speak highly enough about Declan today but I would be saying that for most of the season.”

You can’t praise a player much more than that. And it is nothing less than Dec deserves.

What a player he has become. It would be hard to argue against Rice being labelled as world-class now.

He proved his quality once again yesterday.
