Gabriel Agbonlahor has made a shock call about Declan Rice and Ruben Neves ahead of the West Ham vs Wolves clash today.

The Hammers play host to Wolves at the London Stadium this evening, and nothing less than a win will do for David Moyes’s side.

The West Ham players will fancy their chances, with Raul Jimenez, Hwang Hee-chan and Nathan Collins all set to miss out for the visitors.

Wolves do have some great players though, so the Hammers will have to be wary of them. One player in particular who we need to keep quiet is Ruben Neves.

And Gabriel Agbonlahor has made a huge claim about the Portuguese ace ahead of this evening’s game…

Agbonlahor makes Declan Rice and Ruben Neves claim ahead of West Ham vs Wolves

The West Ham and Wolves midfielders will go head to head at the London Stadium this afternoon.

Whoever wins that individual duel will most likely end up on the winning side.

But who will get the better of who today?

Ex-Aston Villa man Agbonlahor responded when asked on talkSPORT who’s better out of Rice and Neves:

You know what, I’ve got to choose Neves, because he scores screamers. When you’ve got that in your locker. If Neves played in a better team than Wolves, imagine the goals he’d score. Some of the goals he scores, Declan Rice doesn’t score them goals, so Im going to go Neves.

Everyone’s entitled to their own opinions, of course they are.

We would take Rice all day over Neves though. That’s not to say that the Wolves midfielder isn’t an exceptionally good player, because he undoubtedly is.

We just believe that Dec is far more of an all-round player.

And we hope that Rice sees the Agbonlahor claim ahead of the West Ham vs Wolves clash. If he does, it should get him really pumped up for the game.
