Declan Rice has confirmed Jesse Lingard will be stripped off penalty duties for West Ham after miss against Leeds

West Ham continues to push for a spot on European football next season as the Hammers defeated Leeds United 2-0.


Goals from Jesse Lingard and Craig Dawson were enough for David Moyes side who have been in great form.

Manchester United star, Jesse Lingard got his fourth goal since he moved to West Ham on loan.

He rebounded his first effort after his penalty was initially saved by Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier, but he tucked home the rebound.

After the game, West Ham captain Declan Rice has hinted that Lingard might not have the opportunity to play the next spot kick.


He said: "The gaffer has just battered me in there! Me and Jess spoke and we've been practising in training together and he said 'can I take it? And I'm not one to be selfish.

"There was a bit of controversy obviously with the last penalty and I was confident in him to go up and take the ball.


"I'm not a player that's going to be 'oh yeah give me the ball'. Just let Jess have the ball, do his own thing.

West Ham are currently in fifth position in the Premier League table following the win on Monday night.

Rice added: "But the gaffer's just said in there, it's definitely me again! The next one now I'm going to have to say 'look Jess give me the ball back'."
