“He is a massive player and everyone knows that. He has had a fantastic season and for someone so young to captain the side when Nobes [Mark Noble] is not playing. He has a massive future ahead of him, it’s great he is a part of our team and hopefully, we have got him back for this weekend and hopefully, he can kick on and go to the Euro’s as well.”

Declan Rice is undoubtedly THE most important player David Moyes has at his disposal at the London Stadium.

Hopefully he’s back in the team tonight.

West Ham need three wins from the last three games. Even that might not be enough to finish inside the top four.
