West Ham seem to have found their rhythm after a difficult start to the season, winning each of their last three matches in the Premier League.
After seeing off Newcastle United and Cardiff City last week, the Hammers edged a thrilling clash with Crystal Palace at the London Stadium by winning 3-2 – sending Manuel Pellegrini’s side flying up the standings.
Those victories have sparked life into a West Ham side that had struggled to find their feet in the opening months of the new season but there are now plenty of positives for fans to focus on – one of which has been the continued excellent displays from Declan Rice.
Still just 19, the teenager has established himself as one of the first names on Pellegrini’s teamsheet and has quickly become a fan favourite in east London after rising through the youth academy.
After another fine performance at the weekend against the Eagles, many fans jumped at the opportunity to send further praise his way. We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
