West Ham defender Ogbonna: Rice will learn from mistake

West Ham defender Angelo Ogbonna says Declan Rice will learn from Sunday's howler.

An error from Rice is being blamed for West Ham's late collapse at Arsenal.

“4-1 in the end was a bit unfair," Ogbonna told whufc.com. “We played well, we went to Arsenal and for 80 minutes we showed ourselves well.

“Dec has played for a long time this season and every time he's played well. He's a confident boy, and it's just a misunderstanding and I'm sorry for him.

“But we are positive and focused on the next game."

He added: “We are always confident and we are focused on our goal. Our goal is to be safe, so we are still lucky that we are six points above [the relegation zone], but we cannot relax. We have to be focused."
