West Ham secured a vital victory at the London Stadium on Saturday by sweeping past Sean Dyche’s Burnley, picking up only their third victory of the Premier League season.
The Hammers have struggled to find consistency in the early months of Manuel Pellegrini’s reign in East London but plenty of positives emerged from the victory over the Clarets – one of which was another fine performance from Declan Rice.
West Ham’s academy graduate continues to shine in the first-team picture despite his tender age of just 19-years-old and he continues to earn plenty of praise from supporters on social media, who are desperate for his contract stand-off with the club to be resolved.
Another promising display by the versatile teenager has increased the calls for West Ham to secure his future and fans were quick to jump on Twitter to share their thoughts on another impressive performance.
We have gathered some of the best reactions below.

Declan Rice and Grady Diangana, the two youngest players on the pitch yesterday, were absolutely brilliant once again.
