West Ham have enjoyed an upturn in form in recent weeks, after following their first win of the season against Everton with an impressive goalless draw against Chelsea.

The improvement in results has seen pressure upon the Hammers significantly reduced but Manuel Pellegrini’s side still have a lot of work to do on and off the field – and they face a stern test with the latter.

19-year-old sensation Declan Rice has entered the final year of his contract at the London Stadium and is not willing to put pen to paper given the offers on the table from West Ham, the most recent of which is said to be worth around £12k-a-week.

If no agreement is reached by next summer, West Ham could see one of their brightest players from the past 18 months leave for nothing but a debate is rumbling on as to whether Rice is right to hold out for a higher wage.

Questions have been asked on social media and fans have given their view on the situation. We have gathered some of the best reactions below.
