Rice insists West Ham fear nobody in Europa League quarter-final draw

West Ham United star Declan Rice says his team fear nobody in the Europa League quarter-finals draw.

The Hammers beat Sevilla in extra-time on Thursday to reach the last eight, where they could face the likes of Barcelona or Lyon.

"It was so, so special today," said Rice. "This club, the stadium, the fans, the players, we deserve these big European nights. We stepped up tonight. We knew with our fans and the quality we had on the pitch tonight we could do it. Probably the best night I've had at West Ham. I'll take anyone. There's no one to fear.

"Sevilla were probably the favourites. When the draw happened people thought we'd get knocked out, and we've knocked them out. We've worked hard for this. Relegation battles, from when Moyes come in. Still up there in the Premier League and now into the quarter-finals, so there's a big buzz around the place."
