And the future is very bright indeed for the Hammers.

Jamie Carragher thinks West Ham have the new Roy Keane on their hands

One player who stood out for the Hammers at Goodison was Declan Rice.

He really was head and shoulders above every single player on the pitch on Sunday.

And Carragher offered high words of praise for the 22-year-old West Ham midfielder:

“I watched Declan Rice yesterday and I gave him man of the match. The way I watched Rice yesterday it reminded me of a Roy Keane type of performance. I never judged Roy Keane on goals or assists or Patrick Vieira, they were just top midfield players and that was his performance yesterday. Running the game from midfield with a presence, punching passes in the way Roy Keane used to. Running forward with and without the ball and every time Everton attacked he was the guy who seemed to stop them. It was a brilliant performance and I’m a huge fan of his.”

This is actually a great shout from Carra.

The way in which Rice drives his team forward and dominates play in the middle of the park really is reminiscent Manchester United legend Roy Keane.

 

Dec just keeps getting better and better and if he continues his development, who’s to say that he won’t go on to become even better than the likes of Keane and Vieira?
