Declan Rice urged West Ham to keep their foot on the gas after beating 10-man Aston Villa 4-1 to equal champion Manchester City for third place in the table.

Rice scored the visitors’ second goal to restore his lead after Ollie Watkins canceled Ben Johnson’s early shot.

Then Ezri Konsa was sent off early in the second half and Watkins hit the crossbar before Pablo Fornals and Jarrod Bowen scored at the end, meaning the Hammers are undefeated on the road in the league since April.

Rice’s goal was the fourth of the season after boss David Moyes, who took over his 999th as manager, pushed him to find the target more often.

“We are joint third parties,” Rice said. “The big question people were asking before the season was whether we could do it again after qualifying for Europe. We have discovered that we can.

But there are still many games ahead. This is the level, the standard. We cannot leave ourselves if we want to be a great team.

‘I can definitely add [goals] to my game, I have four this season. It does not improve with the feeling of scoring a goal.

“We won 4-1 but we were so careless in the second half. We give away the ball a lot. The manager will not be happy. There were times when we could have countered and given away. ”

Hammers boss David Moyes praised Rice for responding to his challenge.

His team has 20 points in their first 10 games and equaled a club record of five straight road wins here.

“Declan is at a very good level for someone so young,” Moyes said. “He has a great responsibility and has improved a lot.

Hopefully it continues. We asked him last year if he could bring goals and other actions to his game and he has. We are very happy for him.

‘The job of a manager is to try to generate expectations but without speaking nonsense, but it is a good time to judge [teams] after 10 games. The most important thing to me is that none of them think we’ve already done it. There is still a long way to go ”.
