West Ham midfielder Declan Rice didn't hold back when he came up against some young supporters following the club's 2-2 draw against Manchester City on Sunday. You can see that moment below.


David Moyes' side earned a hard-fought point against league leaders City in their final home game of the Premier League campaign.

In fact, it looked like the Hammers would pull off a major shock when they went into the half-time break at 2-0 up thanks to a brace from Jarrod Bowen.

Bowen, who has scored 18 goals in all competitions this season, punished City's slack defending on numerous occasions but it didn't take long for Pep Guardiola's side to stage a comeback.

Jack Grealish made it 2-1 in the 49th minute before West Ham defender Vladimír Coufal knocked the ball into his own net to level the scores.

It was a decent result for both sides on Mark Noble's final home games as a West Ham player.

And as the 35-year-old midfielder said his final goodbyes to fans at the London Stadium, teammate Declan Rice was nutmegging and slide tackling young fans. Brilliant.

One fan commented on the video saying: "Add another £10 million for these skills," while another said: "What a tackle. Add another £20m to the price tag."

West Ham manager David Moyes, meanwhile, was delighted with their performance against City on Sunday.

“I couldn’t believe the way that Manchester City played in the first half and how we played and that we were 2-0 up - they were so good," Moyes said after the full-time whistle.

"They had so much of the ball. We knew we wouldn’t have much of it and we’d suffer. We scored two really good goals and it gave us a chance to try and hang onto it.

"It is a great result for us. We’d have taken a point before the game because we were playing against an incredibly good team.

"I always thought we’d be in the game but they were so good with the ball and it was a job to stop them only scoring two to be honest with you.

"I wanted to challenge and be around fourth or fifth this season so I was disappointed that we’ve dropped off. But we’ve got a great group of players and their resilience - they showed it today with all the blocks they put in."
