[West Ham midfielder Declan Rice says his side have been rubbish recently. The Hammers lost 3-1 to Arsenal at London Stadium on Monday] That pretty much sums up our 16 games. First half we went 1-0 up and were frustrating them. Then second half they score two in six minutes. It is frustrating. We’ve missed a chance to move up the table. It is heartbreaking. We are in the rubbish at the moment. When one goes in we need to learn to keep our heads up. They have great players but they are all preventable goals. We need to look at ourselves. We are making the same mistakes. We are playing good football as well but making too many mistakes. We have to win our home games. It is horrible to hear the boos. We want to make the fans happy. But we have lost big games here. Now is the time to stay together. Games come thick and fast and we need to regroup. The manager is great, the players love the manager. We work hard all week and sometimes you wonder why we can’t transfer that to the pitch

[West Ham’s Declan Rice claims the entirety of the Premier League doesn’t want VAR after the midfielder’s side controversially had a goal ruled out in the dying stages of the 1-0 defeat to Sheffield United] We are fuming. All the lads are livid. This is a tough place to come, credit to them they ground it out. We created some chances and missed some chances. The goal at the end was a tough one to take because a point on the road would have been good for us.

I’ve just watched it back. He has knocked the ball into my hand. If you are running with your arms like that with the rules as they are now it is handball but it is not intentional. It is a kick in the teeth. I think it is the thoughts of every Premier League player, not just me - pretty much every one doesn’t want to have VAR in the game.

There have been so many decisions this season that have been absolutely crazy. They were celebrating VAR like it was a goal and football should not be like that. We are not too happy but it is in the game now and we have to get on with it. I can’t get over it, he knocked it into my hand. It is not intentional handball. I was buzzing. I ran 20 metres up the pitch, slipped the ball in for Snods

[West Ham star Declan Rice has opened up on his shock Chelsea exit at the age of 14] I had to overcome a massive disappointment of being released by Chelsea at the age of 14. That was everything I ever knew to be honest. From nine to 14, training there Monday to Friday, playing games and to get told you won’t be a part of that anymore was a major shock. I never thought it would have to happen but it did. And then I had the fortunate chance to sign for either Fulham or West Ham and chose West Ham and started a whole new chapter. I knew it was going to be tough, but always as a kid I wanted to be a professional footballer. Nothing was ever going to get in the way of me working as hard as possible to become that. I was just so driven and wanted to be the best I could be. I had to make sacrifices, move away from home, move into new digs, and now all the decisions that I made have played out really well

If you are looking to go straight back into it, you’re going to look at so many injuries. That’s what clubs are saying. You need at least three weeks of high intensity interval training to get yourself back in shape with the football. It’s been tough because you are used to seeing your teammates, going out every day and doing the day to day things. To have that taken away from you is really tough. But on the other side of it, given the position we are in at West Ham, it’s nice to not feel the pressure of going out and playing for three points every week. It’s nice from that perspective not to have that stress. But really not only me but the whole of the Premier League want to get back to it now to be honest

[Having Mason Mount as a best friend also helped. The pair don’t just get on well, they also push one another to improve as players] Since we were young, in training and games, we have always been egging each other on to get better. We have always had a winning mentality. We always want to do well. We went our separate ways but always stayed in contact, dropped each other a message now and then. It was special [to see him debut]. From the moment he was lined up to come on, I had a smile on my face. When he ran out and the reception he got, it was really special. I don’t know how he was feeling but I felt like a proud best friend. It was really special for him and his family
