Declan Rice versus Jack Grealish is going to be a highlight of what promises to be a fascinating Sky Main Event game on Monday evening.
Just a week ago Dec and the villa motoring offences bad boy 🙂 were playing international football together – now there is going to be a likely midfield battle royal going on between the pair of them.
Love him or hate him, few can argue that Grealish isn’t a cracking player at his best, but in Declan, with Tomas Soucek alongside, he’s hopefully going to have his work cut out to make a serious impact.
Declan knows several of the Villa players well and is looking forward to a game which could see us go two points clear of the midland outfit who -with ourselves – are the most improved Premier League outfit this season.
I see another Hammers win and will go for a 3-1 despite the visitors’ hat-trick of away win this season.
What do you reckon?
Commenting on the match at https://www.whufc.com/news/articles/2020/november/27-november/declan-rice-relishing-monday-night-duel-england-teammate the Hammers skipper said: “I think Villa have shown this season that they’re a completely different team.
“They’ve made fantastic signings and obviously I know some of their lads really well, so it’s going to be a battle and I know how good their players are.
“They’re playing really well at the moment, but we’ve got the joint second-best defensive record in the Premier League.
“We’re moving in the direction the manager wants us to go so, while it’s going to be a battle, we’re going to be ready for that.”
