The tweet backfired on Collymore, however…badly.

The 22-year-old was quite simply sensational for West Ham after his early slip-up. He drove David Moyes’s team on and played a huge role in our 4-2 win.

Rice got his own back on Saint-Maximin, dispossessing the Newcastle attacker on the halfway line before driving forward and initiating the build-up that led to one of the Hammers’ second-half goals.

We are so lucky to have Dec at the London Stadium, we really are.
