Rice’s emergence as more of an attacking threat has been encouraged by Moyes and the England international is thriving as a result. Rice revealed earlier this month that he is taken inspiration from Steven Gerrard to help further this game.

“Now I have gone more box-to-box I have been watching Steven Gerrard just because of how good he was,” Rice told The Telegraph.

“He had everything. He could tackle, was tenacious, was fast, was a leader, could score goals, he wore his heart on his sleeve.

“He was just unbelievable. He was one of the greats but you don’t actually really fully appreciate him until you watch him.”
