West Ham United youngster Declan Rice scored his first goal for the club on Saturday.
Rice finally opened his account for the Hammers at the weekend, as Manuel Pellegrini’s side got past Arsenal.
The defensive midfielder curled a shot into the top corner to enhance his reputation at the London Stadium even further.
And Cresswell was delighted for his West Ham teammate, as the stick can now stop.
“I was buzzing for him because I’ve been battering him for the last few weeks, saying ‘Any chance of a goal?!’ as he’s played 55 games now!” Cresswell joked.
“It couldn’t have happened at a better time. We won one-nil, Dec’s scored the winner and he got a bit excited in the celebration as I don’t think he knew what to do!
“Samir played the ball back and he didn’t have to blast it. It was a really controlled finish for a young lad and I’m buzzing for him.”
West Ham were much the better side against Arsenal, as they picked up an important three points.
Pellegrini’s men were very impressive, as their strong run of form continued.
West Ham are now in ninth place in the Premier League table, and they have quickly accelerated up the standings.
The Hammers are next in action against Bournemouth at Dean Court on Saturday.
