There is no secret that West Ham midfielder Declan Rice keeps a very close eye on the goings on at Chelsea.
Largely because he is best friends with their midfielder Mason Mount, but also his deep rooted ties with the club after having started in the same youth academy as Mount.

Well, Mount has certainly made it at Chelsea, and he produced his best ever moment as a Blue last night, scoring the goal to send Chelsea through to the Champions League final, knocking out giants Real Madrid.
You just know that Rice would have been at home screaming at his TV willing Chelsea on, just like all our fans.
And he just had to tweet a reaction, which was probably wisely muted compared to what he would want to be saying!
But you can almost hear how proud he is in this tweet, and we still hope he returns to Stamford Bridge one day as a Blue to join in the fun!
MM. What a journey❤️😁
