The 19-year-old scored his first goal for West Ham as Manuel Pellegrini's men once again exposed Arsenal's soft underbelly.

Hammers youngster Rice was presented with a glorious opportunity early in the second half when Granit Xhaka's poor headed clearance fell to him in the area.

"West Ham will have been delighted to have signed him up on that deal that he seemed to be taking an age to sign."

"In the early stages of this game Arsenal were playing pretty well but he played his part in making the tide go in West Ham's direction."

"Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini said:"I am sure Declan will be a top player.

"Declan is very strong in aerial duels, he is strong one-versus-one, has a good technique, and he demonstrated that in the goal he scored."

"So I'm sure that we are seeing a top player soon and we'll see not only for West Ham but also for the national squad that he decides to play for."
