How Declan Rice Felt About Arsenal Fans' Chant After Stunning Man Utd

 Arsenal fans were ecstatic after their team scored two goals in stoppage time to beat Manchester United 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. 

Declan Rice, who joined the Gunners from West Ham United for a club-record £105 million this summer, was the hero of the day as he netted the decisive goal in the 96th minute. He was also named the man of the match for his dominant performance in midfield.

But how did Rice feel about the fans' chant that celebrated his goal and his name? The Arsenal supporters sang 'Rice, Rice Baby' to the tune of the Vanilla Ice hit 'Ice, Ice Baby' as the players remained on the pitch after the final whistle. Rice, who has 43 caps for England, admitted that he was a bit embarrassed by the song, but also appreciated the love and support from the fans.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the match, Rice said: "It's good to hear the fans. Obviously, as a person you feel a little bit embarrassed walking around hearing that being sung...but I really appreciate all the love they've shown me so far, you know, it's been incredible. Just trying to soak it all in, just trying to enjoy myself."

Rice has quickly become a key player for Mikel Arteta's side, who have taken 10 points from their first four Premier League games of the season. He has formed a solid partnership with Thomas Partey in the middle of the park, and has shown his ability to win back possession, launch attacks, and score goals. His goal against Manchester United was his first for Arsenal, and he will be hoping to add more to his tally as the season progresses.

Arsenal fans will be hoping that Rice can continue his impressive form and help them challenge for the top four and trophies this season. They will also be looking forward to singing more catchy chants for their new star player.
