"The way they gave their tribute to Ray Wilkins was a credit". At the start of the second half he was moved wide again but this time further forward, in a traditional right wing role.
"On the day, we had a game plan and we stuck to it", said Rice.
Wilkins died at the age of 61 after suffering a cardiac arrest.
Hart's brilliance combined with Chelsea's failure to convert chances always left West Ham with a glimmer of hope, and there were signs of the hosts' vulnerabilities during two early set pieces that were defended in unconvincing fashion.
A seventy-third-minute goal from Javier Hernandez cancelled out Cesar Azpilicueta's first-half opener for the Blues, helping the Hammers forge a six-point cushion between themselves and the relegation zone, leaving the Scotsman satisfied with the toil from his players.
