Arsenal fought back from behind this weekend as they rescued a point at Chelsea with an inspired second half performance.

Declan Rice got one back before Leandro Trossard made sure of the point in the final ten minutes. For the Gunners, it felt like a big moment and point against a London rival.

And speaking on The 2 Robbies Podcast, former Wimbledon midfielder Robbie Earle was full of praise for goalscorer Rice.

Pundit praises Declan Rice for the impact he’s had at Arsenal

Speaking about Rice and how he’s settled in at Arsenal, Earle was really impressed with the England man.

“Declan Rice has brought a drive and a maturity, and I know he’s only 24, but he’s played an incredible amount of games already and rarely he’s injured. That’s going to be important to Arsenal going for the challenge of the title,” Earle said.

“They’re in a better place with him. There’s a mentality about him that I love. The way he took the goal, the way that he drives on. I talked about him a few weeks ago against Man City. He in that midfield just makes them so much better. I don’t know what the word is. But it’s like you bring what you want to the midfield but we’ve got Declan Rice. He’s got a belief in what he’s doing and I think he’s such a big influence on that group in such a short period of time.”
