Declan admits ‘sick’ feeling

Declan Rice says he was left feeling “sick” after West Ham’s defeat to Liverpool.

The Hammers were brutally unlucky in the north-west, as they were ultimately beaten by a brilliant early Darwin Nunez header.

However, they had a huge opportunity to level the scores, when Jarrod Bowen was fouled in the box and a penalty was awarded.

The England international stepped up to take the spot-kick but saw it saved by Alisson Becker.

Rice was superb throughout the game, especially in the second half, as the Hammers grew into the game and began to create clear-cut chances.

However, David Moyes’ side were unable to rescue a point from the game and were left empty-handed, to the disgust of the Hammers skipper.

Speaking after the game, as quoted by the BBC, Declan said: “I feel sick, I honestly feel sick. We know it is a tough place to come, you have to show grit, heart and desire,

“There was enough in the second half to nick something from the game. We are showing signs we can compete with the big boys.

“To show the courage we did in the second half, dominating the ball and creating chances, I’m proud of everyone. I’m just gutted we couldn’t get something from the game like we should have.”

The Hammers will aim to go again on Monday evening against Bournemouth at the London Stadium. The Cherries have been in decent form recently, and are 11th in the table, although they were beaten by Southampton on Wednesday.
