Declan Rice took to Twitter last night and responded brilliantly to a ridiculous tweet from Lyon before their defeat to West Ham.

The Hammers and Lyon played out a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium the first-leg of the Europa League tie last week.

It was a good result on the night for us after Aaron Cresswell was sent off just before half-time.

And the boys took care of business in the Groupama Stadium last night, winning 3-0 and sending us through to the Europa League semi-finals.

Declan Rice put in an absolutely top-drawer performance once against for West Ham when it really mattered.

The 23-year-old Hammers ace dictated the tempo of the game from the middle of the park and constantly drove us forward when we had the ball.

David Moyes would have been delighted with his skipper’s display and the Scot would have loved the cheeky tweet that Dec sent out after the game as well.

The Ligue 1 outfit’s Twitter admin had an absolute stinker earlier this week.

They arrogantly posted that essentially there is no chance that they would not progress through to the semi-finals.

We would have been fuming had the West Ham admin posted something like that. It was just asking for trouble wasn’t it.

And Rice let Lyon know about it on Twitter last night:

You really do love to see it don’t you!

Those kind of things always come back to bite you in football.

The West Ham camp remained quiet heading into the game and the players took care of business on the pitch.

Declan Rice led West Ham to a memorable win over Lyon last night.

And the French side’s Twitter admin will surely be feeling rather silly this morning.
