- Mon, 24 Sep 2018 21:30:04 +0000: West Ham need to secure Declan Rice’s signature, says Pablo Zabaleta - West Ham United | The Guardian
• Dressing room needs to keep his feet on ground, Zabaleta says
• Teenage Hammers midfielder holds out for £30k a week
Pablo Zabaleta has urged West Ham to prioritise securing Declan Rice to a new contract following the teenager’s hugely impressive start to the season.
Rice has operated in defensive midfield over recent weeks and contributed heavily to the win at Everton and encouraging draw at home against Chelsea on Sunday which have lifted West Ham from the foot of the league table. Manuel Pellegrini heaped praise on the youngster’s performance in that derby, yet Rice has entered the final 12 months of his deal having rejected a new offer over the summer.Continue reading...

- Sun, 23 Sep 2018 17:50:43 +0000: Record-breaking Jorginho the beating heart of Chelsea’s mangled midfield | Barney Ronay - West Ham United | The Guardian
Maurizio Sarri’s linchpin saw a prodigious amount of the ball at West Ham yet was most effective in blunting N’Golo Kanté
With three minutes to go here, Jorginho played a nudged sideways pass across the centre circle. Oddly there was no spontaneous ovation, Jorginho did not punch the air or collapse tearfully to his knees or do a dance from Fortnite. It was odd because in that moment Jorginho had broken the Premier League record for passes completed in a game, edging out Ilkay Gündogan’s mark of 165, set this year.
A few minutes earlier a lofted sideways pass to Willian meant Jorginho surged past Cesc Fàbregas’s 144-pass Chelsea record, set against West Brom in November 2014. By the end he was on a sensational 180 passes, not just beating the record but obliterating it, a GOAT-level performance of wiffling the ball about in midfield that may, for all we know, never be surpassed. At least not – it is to be hoped – while this reporter is present.Continue reading...
- Sun, 23 Sep 2018 17:40:03 +0000: Chelsea not at same level as Liverpool, says Maurizio Sarri - West Ham United | The Guardian
• Goalless draw at West Ham forces a reality check
• Head coach admits he is still trying to impose his philosophy
Chelsea go into successive games against Liverpool this week having surrendered their perfect record under Maurizio Sarri and with the head coach warning it will take him at least 12 months to hoist his side to the level of the new Premier League leaders.
After a goalless draw at West Ham United, Chelsea ended the weekend in third place. While for a midweek tie at Anfield in the Carabao Cup both teams could field much-changed lineups, the top‑flight meeting at Stamford Bridge on Saturday is already eagerly anticipated, though Sarri is wary of the threat that will be posed by Liverpool.Continue reading...
