Rice auditions for Chelsea in West Ham 5-goal thriller win

Declan Rice was every where on the pitch at the London Stadium in West Ham 3-2 win against Chelsea on Saturday.

The 22-year-old who started his career from Chelsea academy has been linked with a return move to Stamford Bridge.

And he must have done enough to send “come and get me plea” to Thomas Tuchel and Chelsea.

Chelsea opened the scoring through Thiago Silva but Manuel Lanzini equalised from the spot kick after Edouard Mendy error gifted the penalty.

Mason Mount gave Chelsea the lead in the 44th minutes of the game to go into half time break with a goal advantage.

But the second half was entirely different as West Ham equalised in the 56th minutes through Jarred Bowen.

West Ham got the winning goal in the 87th minute through a powerful Authur Masuaku strike.

Declan Rice had a great game he made more ball recoveries (11) or interceptions (3) than every one on the pitch.

With Ngolo Kante constantly getting injured a move for the English midfielder could suffice.
