The Hammers were brilliant on the whole and Rice was once again the standout performer for David Moyes’s side.
Rice scored a goal and provided an assist but his overall display was about so much more than his goal contributions.
The 22-year-old never stops running. He is absolutely everywhere for the Hammers.
David Moyes will have been delighted with his skipper’s performance against Aston Villa today.
He set the tone for us from the start and was still pushing right up until the final whistle.
Rice ran the show at Villa Park. What a player, what a talent and what a character he is turning out to be.
The West Ham fans love him and so do his teammates.
