West Ham: Declan Rice set to be fit to face Wolves

West Ham: Declan Rice set to be fit to face Wolves -Premier League News

West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice is set to be available to face Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League this weekend, according to insider Claret and Hugh.

The Lowdown: Injury concerns

The Irons captain has been away on international duty for the past fortnight, though fears were sparked earlier this week when it looked like he’d potentially injured himself.

The 23-year-old appeared to have overstretched and taken a knock in England’s Nations League game against Germany on Monday evening, and no further details on his fitness have been revealed since, causing concern for the London Stadium outfit.

The Latest: Rice fitness update

According to West Ham insider Claret and Hugh, a close source has confirmed that Rice is ‘expected to be fit’ to take on the Old Gold this Saturday.

It’s stated that the club’s medical staff are ‘reasonably confident’ that he will be available to maintain his place in David Moyes’ starting XI.

The Verdict: Boost for Moyes

Having Rice at his disposal will come as a huge boost for the Scotsman who will know how much of an integral squad member his skipper is.

The maestro, dubbed a ‘dominator’ by football talent scout Jacek Kulig, currently averages three tackles per top-flight game and has an 88.5% pass success rate (WhoScored).

Rice also has two assists to his name, highlighting his contributions in the final third, and the Irons will need this kind of attacking intent if they want to lift themselves out of relegation with a win against Wolves.
