Rice was absolutely magnificent. David Moyes will be delighted with his captain’s performance.

We are so lucky to have Declan Rice at the London Stadium and if we keep on performing like we have been of late, there’s no reason why we won’t be able to keep him in East London.

His display this afternoon typified everything that both him and West Ham are all about.

West Ham fans rave about phenomenal Declan Rice

He racked up an assist and a goal but his all-round display was just breathtaking.

The 22-year-old was everywhere. He was tenacious in the tackle, strong in the air and provided a shield for our back four.

The way in which he drives forward with the ball and goes past players for fun really is incredible to watch.

He’s like a thoroughbred! An outstanding player who can reach the very top.
