West Ham secured back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time this season after sweeping aside Cardiff City at the London Stadium on Tuesday evening.

After easing past Newcastle United at the weekend, confidence was high heading into the midweek fixture and a fine second-half performance saw the Hammers ensure all three points remained in East London.

Goals from Lucas Perez and Michail Antonio were the deciding factor in the result but plenty of supporters expressed their delight at another fine performance from Declan Rice, who has established himself as a key player in Manuel Pellegrini’s squad.

Still just 19-years-old, Rice has featured in 12 of West Ham’s 14 Premier League matches this season and is now one of the first names on the teamsheet, while he has become a fan favourite with supporters after rising through the youth ranks.

Plenty took the opportunity to praise Rice again after the midweek win and we have gathered some of the best reactions below.
