Declan Rice played the full 90 minutes of West Ham United’s goalless draw with Aston Villa in the Premier League on Monday night.
According to WhoScored, the England international won six tackles, had two shots and won two aerial duels during a strong performance.
What’s more, Rice also boasted pass success statistics of 96%, operating at the base of West Ham’s midfield.
It was quite a frustrating match for the Hammers, who finished with 10 men after Arthur Masuaku was sent off due to picking up a second yellow card and eventually had to settle for a point.
However, Rice further enhanced his reputation with a strong performance against the likes of John McGinn and Jack Grealish in the middle of the park.

Declan Rice silenced a lot of critics once again tonight with his performance. So dominant in the middle breaking up play countless times and getting us moving forward, definitely improving his ability when in possession.
