Moyes bemoans the loss of Rice

West Ham were thrashed by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, the latest in several heavy defeats they have suffered in the calendar year to date.

When asked by manager David Moyes after the match the reasons for this, his answer was simple – the club can no longer call on the services of Declan Rice, a player he describes as the best midfielder in England.

Rice left the Hammers last summer to join Arsenal, where he has gone on to thrive and take his game to a new level.

He managed a goal and assist against Bournemouth and is in contention to be named Premier League Player of the Year.

Whilst it is widely accepted that the Gunners overpaid for him, Rice is beginning to look like a bargain.

The Hammers di get ₤105 million for him, but despite brining in the likes of James Ward-Prowse, Mohammed Kudus and Edson Álvarez with the money, some players it seems are just irreplaceable.

With Moyes now leaving the Hammers at the end of the season, Rice’s sale may have been the beginning of the end for the Scot.
