OPINION

This is exciting news for West Ham fans. They have seen what can happen when is given a chance, and the rise of Declan Rice should be enough to convince any supporter that there are merits to putting faith in the . The Hammers have a lot of top young players at their disposal, so for Coventry to be picked out as a player to watch really says something. The teenager won the Irons’ Dylan Tombides Award for his efforts in 2017/18, and that is as good a sign as any that he is one to watch. Manuel Pellegrini will no doubt be fully aware of how well he is performing, and if he keeps up that level of quality, it is surely only a matter of time before he is given a nod to showcase his talents in the League. At the moment, you would fancy him to make good on that chance.
