He has good characteristics to combine with his team mates, to play in this side and give more options. He is a complete player."

Rice came in for some criticism for his defensive error which contributed to Kosovo's second goal against England in Tuesday's European Qualifier at St Mary's.

Hammers manager Pellegrini is confident Rice has the mentality to take everything in his stride and flourish for the national side.

"Declan is a very young player, he is improving in every game he plays," said Pellegrini.

"He is only 20 years old and I think with his age it is important he plays for England and it is important for him the way he can demonstrate how he works.

"You can expect these mistakes for any kind of player. He is improving and for the moment he is doing well in that position.

"If you are 20 years old you always want to play, but we will see if he has any muscle problem. For the moment Declan must continue playing."

<![CDATA[Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks: Use Madrid heartache as motivation]]> <p>Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks says they can take inspiration from last season's run to the Champions League final.</p><p>Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool cruised to a 2-0 victory after taking the lead inside the first three minutes in Madrid in June.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/tottenham-midfielder-harry-winks-use-madrid-heartache-as-motivation-4296969?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks says they can take inspiration from last season's run to the Champions League final.

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool cruised to a 2-0 victory after taking the lead inside the first three minutes in Madrid in June.

Winks said: We know, getting to the Champions League final, there is going to be high pressure on us getting there again and maybe to go one further and win it.

We don't read too much into that, we take it game by game.

So our first thought is Olympiakos on Wednesday, we have to take that game as it comes and then hopefully we can get a result."

He added: When you get that close to winning the final, it is upsetting and disappointing.

There is no better way than trying to go one step further like Liverpool did.

It is obviously everyone's dream to get back there but we can't look too far into the future, it is all about taking it game by game and hopefully we can pick up as many wins as possible."

After seeing West Ham waste opportunities to finish in the top seven last year, the No23 wants to avoid the same mistakes this time around.

Europe qualification has to be our target, it has to be and it is better to have high ambition than low ambition!" he told the club's website. We want to finish the season in the best-possible position and go far in a cup, if not win a cup. We have to have big ambition and we shouldn't be scared of these targets. This helps to push you forward."

West Ham will go third with a win at Aston Villa on Monday evening and, while Diop expects a tough test in the Midlands, he is optimistic the Irons can make it three victories in a row.

Away games are always difficult in England but it's going to be a good game," he observed. The lads told me Aston Villa is a very good atmosphere with good fans, so like every game we want to win, so I hope we're going to do our best game to get the three points."

Writing in his weekly column in the London Evening Standard, Noble stated: I was so pleased, as well, that Josh Cullen, who is on loan at Charlton from West Ham, was man-of-the-match for the Republic of Ireland against Bulgaria.

Josh has something you can't coach. He has that desire every day to improve, to work hard. He's a talented boy with a big heart and will enjoy a good career in football.

It just shows you that, if you're prepared to back yourself and go out on loan, rather than staying in the comfort zone, you can do it.

I remember going out on loan, first to Hull for a month which I didn't enjoy that much and then to Ipswich, which I loved. I came back from there after three months and I thought 'I'm ready to play now' and the rest, as they say, is history!"

Stacey was handed his Premier League debut.

Howe said, I thought Jack did really well. He was up against a really tough competitor in Alex Iwobi who is an outstanding player.

He was examined by him and responded every time. I thought he stepped up defensively and did a really good job for the team.

Usually, he's a marauding full-back, up and down the line. But he knew he had to be responsible and defend first. He did it really well.

I was really pleased with him. It's a huge moment for any player to make their debut in the Premier League. He's done it in impressive fashion and was part of a winning team so credit to him."

Calcio Mercato says AC Milan, Inter and Juventus are all considering moving for the Serbian in the summer when his United contract expires.

They also claim German media believe that Borussia Dortmund are thinking about Matic too.

A new contract looks unlikely, but it remains to be seen where Matic will go if he departs Old Trafford.

The Serb has admitted he wants more minutes than he's seen under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
