Declan Rice: West Ham midfielder set for month out with a knee injury, misses Wolves clash

Declan Rice will miss West Ham’s clash with Wolves with a knee injury and could be out of action for a month.

The midfielder picked up the knock while on duty with England during the international break.

Prior to the Wolves match, Rice had featured in all of West Ham’s Premier League games this season, playing a key role as the London side mount a surprise bid for Champions League qualification.

England manager Gareth Southgate will be hoping Rice makes a quick and full recovery, with the 22-year-old integral to his midfield plans for the Euro 2020 tournament this summer.

Rice played every minute of the games against Albania and Poland last week, as England made it three wins from three matches in their World Cup 2022 qualification group.
