Rice commits to West Ham until 2024

May JohnsonJan 01, 2019

But all in all, this performance signified the quality and resolve West Ham have discovered under Pellegrini as they moved back into the top half of the table having won six of their last eight league outings.

Chris Wood got his now customary strike against the Hammers before the outstanding 19-year-old Dwight McNeil bagged his first Premier League goal - both inside the opening 35 minutes.

Oxford has also been subject to interest from Arsenal and Everton, according to The Mirror, and West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini has starved the youngster of first-team opportunities.

In the line-up, the biggest surprise was the return from injury of star striker Marko Arnautovic.

Oxford's breakthrough season for West Ham came during the 2015/16 campaign, when the defender made 12 appearances in Europe, the FA Cup and the Premier League.

But Wood is taking a confident approach to the new year.

A poor clearance from Ogbonna went straight to Ashley Westwood and his cross from the right picked out McNeill at the far post who poked it home.

Hart spent last season on loan with West Ham, following a year at Torino in 2016/17, before signing permanently for Burnley in the summer.

Eden Hazard replies when asked if he’ll extend his Chelsea FC contract
Many pundits and bookmakers believe that Eden Hazard will be on his way out of Chelsea next summer and join Real Madrid . Maurizio Sarri has revealed Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi are injured and out of Chelsea's next game.

And with the Clarets' next two top flight games against the sides below them in the standings, McNeil knows how important the trip to the John Smith Stadium is. Robert Snodgrass tested Alex McCarthy's resolve from distance, while Grady Diangana and skipper for the night, Aaron Cresswell provided the Saints with a conundrum from the flanks - the latter providing a glorious opening for Lucas Perez, who horribly fluffed his lines with the goal at his mercy.

Declan Rice has signed a new deal with West Ham but is yet to decide his global future. "I am sure that he will continue improving in the second half".

His employers at West Ham were mightily relieved to have Rice pledge his medium-term future to the club he joined at 15 after being released by his boyhood idols Chelsea.

Southampton came into Thursday's clash against West Ham in optimistic mood.

This was a day to forget for the Hammers against a relegation-haunted side who simply wanted the points more than they did.

West Ham continued to press.

The Austrian boss felt his side could have had a penalty when Declan Rice held Jan Bednarek before West Ham broke for Anderson's victor.
