West Ham United recorded the much-needed win their fans craved with a 2-0 victory over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

The result ensures that the Hammers will play Premier League football next season and eases concerns that the club could be yet be embroiled in a relegation scramble.

West Ham went into the lead with a striker from Joao Mario, while an amazing goal from Mark Noble ensured the three points went to the visitors.

While the attacking players in the Hammers ranks deserve praise, a clean sheet will also be a welcome result for manager David Moyes.

One of the reasons that Leicester did not register was Declan Rice, with the youngster putting in a solid performance for West Ham.

The Irish defender has grown in stature this season and gone from a rising talent to a regular first-team inclusion.

Rice’s latest tweet, where he is pictured kissing the West Ham badge and praising the fans, shows his passion for the club and commitment to the cause.

The versatile star is a player that the Hammers should build their team around and someone that has the potential to be a club captain in the future.
