Declan Rice hails 'amazing' Old Trafford after Man Utd beat West Ham

Declan Rice described playing at Old Trafford as ‘amazing’ following West Ham’s defeat to Manchester United on Saturday.

David Moyes’ side looked on course for a draw against United but Marcus Rashford struck from close range in injury time to secure the three points for Ralf Rangnick’s men.

Rice, meanwhile, delivered another impressive performance at the heart of West Ham’s midfield, showing why he has been heavily linked with a move to United.

And when asked about how much he relished playing at Old Trafford after the game, Rice said: ‘Yeah, I was loving it.

‘I think every time I come to Old Trafford, I’ve always said it’s one of my favourite places to play.

‘It’s an amazing stadium and you’re playing against top opposition. The history of this stadium, you always want to do well and you always want to play well when you come here.’

Meanwhile, Moyes revealed his frustration with the last-gasp defeat.

‘I’m p***** off with that result, that’s for sure,’ said the West Ham boss.

‘We defended well enough, we completely switched off [for the goal]. We didn’t do things that you learn as a young player when you’re trying to see games out. What you try and do in that last minute, we didn’t do that well.

‘We defended well today but we lacked what we had in recent weeks, out attacking play wasn’t at that level but you also have to remember the level of the opposition.

‘I’m not coming into these games to roll over and lose and say things are okay, we want to be better than that. I don’t think you’re competitive enough when you’ve got that mindset. I’m not pleased with the result but pleased with the performance, defensively – not our attacking play.’
