Declan Rice has lauded Pablo Fornals on Instagram as the England international responded to his teammate’s post on West Ham’s win over Burnley on Monday.
David Moyes’s men kept themselves right in the mix for a top four spot in the Premier League. They came from behind to beat the Clarets 2-1 at Turf Moor.
The Irons played some scintillating football at times. And they created more than enough chances to kill off the game several times over.
Fornals was one of those who really impressed for the visitors. As shown by Whoscored, he completed three key passes. Only Aaron Cresswell and Said Benrahma managed more.
Meanwhile, no player completed more dribbles than the Spaniard.
And it seems that his display left Rice extremely impressed. The midfielder, of course, missed the game as he continues to work his way back from injury.
But he needed just a few words to sum up what he made of Fornals’s performance on social media…

There is an amazing opportunity for West Ham to achieve something special this season. They remain just three points off the top four with four games remaining.
It is also important to note that Chelsea still have to play two of the top three. And should they remain in the Champions League, Thomas Tuchel will have to juggle their priorities in the final days of the campaign.
