The 25-year-old midfielder signed from West Ham United in the summer for an initial £100 million, with £5m in add-ons, and has been integral to the Gunners’ hopes of winning the Premier League title this season as they sit two points off Liverpool at the top of the table.”I’ll be honest, some people might stand here and say ‘Yeah, I’ve surprised myself,’ but I haven’t,” Rice tells ESPN. “I was playing this well at West Ham, I feel like my levels at West Ham gave me so much confidence and belief in myself to have that belief I can be a top Premier League player.

“But the main thing was to be myself. Not to change anything. Just because I have been signed for £105 million, don’t do anything different, just be myself. Things can unlock and so far things have gone really well. I’ve signed for six years and there is still such a long way to go in my Arsenal career.”

A Season of Reflection and Resurgence

Arsenal’s journey last season under the astute leadership of Mikel Arteta was nothing short of a spectacle. Dominating the league and showcasing football of the highest caliber, the Gunners seemed poised to end their title drought. However, a series of unexpected defeats allowed Manchester City, under the seasoned helm of Pep Guardiola, to overtake them and defend their crown. Reflecting on this, Rice, during his speech at the London Football Awards, candidly admitted, “I think last year, Gunners were the best team in the league. They slipped up at the end and obviously, City always come on so strong.”

This admission, far from a sign of defeat, has been the catalyst for a remarkable transformation within the team. Learning from the past, Rice highlights a newfound strength and belief permeating through the Arsenal ranks. “This year, I feel everyone including the manager and the staff, everyone’s learned from their mistakes. Everyone’s stronger, they have more belief,” Rice disclosed, emphasizing the team’s resilience even when trailing in games.

With the Premier League’s notorious unpredictability, Arsenal’s current season has been a testament to their growth, navigating through challenges with a steely determination. Despite facing a “little wobble” during the festive season, Rice remains optimistic about Arsenal’s title aspirations, acknowledging the tight competition but buoyed by the team’s position in the title race with 12 games to go.

Rice’s journey with Gunners this season has been nothing short of remarkable, culminating in a memorable moment against his former club, West Ham United. Describing the mixed emotions of scoring in Arsenal’s emphatic 6-0 victory over West Ham, Rice’s respect for his former club was palpable. “I always said I would never celebrate against West Ham… They made me who I am,” Rice stated, underscoring the respect and gratitude he harbors towards West Ham, despite now donning Arsenal’s colors.

Arsenal’s Pursuit of Glory

As Gunners gears up to face Sheffield United, the spotlight once again falls on Declan Rice, whose contributions have been pivotal in Arsenal’s quest to end a 20-year wait for league glory. With four goals and five assists to his name this season, Rice’s influence on the field is undeniable.

In a league where every match can dramatically alter the title race, Arsenal’s resolve, spearheaded by figures like Rice, will be crucial in their pursuit of Premier League supremacy. With the lessons of the past firmly ingrained, the Gunners look poised to rewrite their narrative, transforming last season’s disappointment into this season’s triumph.
