Mark Noble’s return has coincided with three West Ham wins
West Ham captain Mark Noble has seen had a couple of spells outside of the team so far this campaign, but the facts are that he’s started in five of the six Premier League games the club have won so far this season.
The Hammers are sat 11th in the league standing after 16 fixtures and will be hoping they can continue their rise up the table.
After a fairly disappointing start, Manuel Pellegrini’s side have won their last three consecutive league matches as the pieces of the puzzle start to fall into place.
It’s no coincidence that midfielder Noble has been back involved in those matches by starting each game and is still an unsung hero.
Noble is not the most eye-catching player at the London Stadium, but gets through all the ugly work in the centre of the park and his leadership qualities are undeniable.
The 31-year-old helps galvanise his team both on and off the pitch, while also providing a great teammate for central midfield partner Declan Rice.
Noble can still provide an engine in the midfield with his energy and can play an important role in the squad under Pellegrini.
West Ham announced on Wednesday they have taken up the option to extend Noble’s deal until 2021 and it’s vital having a figure like him around the club.
