Some Newcastle United fans have used Isaac Hayden’s performance in Saturday’s win to taunt Declan Rice, and more specifically his valuation.

Newcastle inflicted more misery on West Ham with a 3-2 triumph at the London Stadium and Hayden’s showing was widely applauded.

Rice had an afternoon to forget and amid reports linking him with a potential £80million move to Manchester United, these supporters were quick to aim their jokes at Rice…


When a player rated as highly as Rice underperforms, you’ve got to expect the reaction to follow and Newcastle fans had the right to enjoy the win.

Any neutral wouldn’t rate Hayden higher than Rice, but you’ve got to credit his performance in East London.

The Hammers players must pick themselves up sooner rather than later though before the season unravels completely.

Is Declan Rice worth £80million?
