Pellegrini admits Man Utd target Rice could leave West Ham

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini admitted he is uncertain of whether the club will be able to keep Declan Rice this summer should bigger sides come for him.

Pellegrini's side take on Watford on Sunday to round off their season, where the Argentine will be hoping his side can break the 50-point barrier.

Last time out, Watford had their own profligacy to blame as they were defeated 3-0 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

He admits that after a poor start to their campaign, it is pleasing to see the kind of football West Ham displayed in the last month and secure a top ten finish.

Gerard Deulofeu threatened on a couple of occasions for the hosts in a half they largely dominated, but it was the visitors who dealt a hammer blow six minutes from half time. "We want to get points and finish as high up the table as we can". Zabaleta undercooked an attempted backpass to Fabianski and Deulofeu latched on to it, proceeding to nudge the ball beyond the exposed West Ham goalkeeper and poke home.

Such is the 25-year-old's importance to the Hornets, he was hooked off after 60 minutes with Gracia having one eye on their trip to Wembley. "It's a shame it always seems to end when we're playing so well".

Watford may have caught cup fever but Javi Gracia bristled at the suggestion of resting players ahead of Saturday's showpiece and named his strongest side here, though Adrian Mariappa is likely to return in the heart of defence.

Meanwhile, Manuel Pellegrini prepares to lock horns with a familiar face.

"When we started the season, we had just six weeks working in pre-season, but now after one year of working we have an improvement, and as I said that must continue".

"We are going to play in a final against City". "If we have a normal season, without so many injured players, we can be a more consistent team".
