Declan Rice sends clear transfer message to Moyes as West Ham lost to Palace

Declan Rice has made it very clear to David Moyes that he needs to start rotating his West Ham United starting lineup.

David Moyes would have been fuming with the way that his side lost to Crystal Palace today, and Declan Rice clearly was as well.

Despite the fact that the Hammers only lost by one goal today, it really wasn’t ever that close. The performance really was very poor indeed.

West Ham are right back in the relegation mix now, and face tough games against the two Manchester clubs over the next week.

If the Hammers players don’t buck their ideas up quick, we could be in real trouble. There is a real worry that many of our key men are burnt out already though…

Declan Rice sends clear message to David Moyes when asked why West Ham lost to Palace

The 24-year-old Hammers skipper spoke to reporters after today’s really poor defeat to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

And Rice responded when asked if he knows the reason why he and his teammates put in such a poor performance, as quoted by

“It was not good enough today. Whether it has come down to the number of games we have played in such a short space of time, with a few players looking a bit tired.”

That is a clear message from Declan Rice to David Moyes that he needs to rotate his players more regularly in my opinion.

The likes of Dec, Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio looked absolutely dead on their feet against Palace today. They have all been run into the ground in recent weeks after all.

Bowen definitely needs a rest against Manchester City, and I know it might sound controversial but I think Rice should be left out as well. Let’s face it, we’re not getting a result at The Etihad, whatever team we play! We are far more likely to get a positive result against Manchester United next weekend.

The Hammers still have plenty of games to play this season, and if Moyes doesn’t rest certain players over the next week, we could be in real trouble by the time our Europa Conference League semi-final clash with AZ Alkmaar comes around.
