The Hammers travel to the west Midlands to take on the Villans tomorrow in the Premier League’s 4:30pm kick-off.

West Ham can cement their place inside the top four with a win whilst Aston Villa desperately need all three points to help halt their alarming recent drop in form.

David Moyes will be delighted with the manner in which his side have begun their 2021/22 campaign both domestically and on the continent.

The Hammers are now a team that no other side will relish facing. And that says all you need to know about how much we’ve improved over the past two years under Moyes.

Tim Sherwood thinks West Ham player will boss Aston Villa

The Sky Sports pundit offered high words of praise for Hammers star Declan Rice.

Sherwood suggested that the outstanding Rice will boss Aston Villa tomorrow afternoon, when speaking on Gillette Soccer Saturday today (Saturday October 30th, 1:24pm):

“I think when West Ham come to town they will play a nice counter attacking style. Declan Rice will sit in the middle and undoubtedly boss the middle of the park in this game. He’s incredible. He’s the most improved player over the last couple of seasons in the Premier League. He can get into everyone’s side in that role. He’s developed as a player. He’s driving, bursting through holes, he can see a pass, he wins headers and he realises his responsibility to that side. He is still very young, he is a leader, he’s a throwback. He makes people around him better, outstanding, I can’t speak highly enough of Declan Rice.”

The 22-year-old is everything that Sherwood said…and more.

Rice is undoubtedly West Ham’s most important player. He is the best DM in the Premier League, if not the world.

Considering the fact that he’s just 22, that is quite the statement, but it’s true.

The great thing is that if we continue to improve and develop as a football club, there is no reason why we won’t be able to keep Rice at the London Stadium for the remainder of his career.

In order to make that happen though, it will be vital for the board to back David Moyes in the transfer market in January and next summer.
