Noble hails West Ham’s ‘brave’ win over Spurs

Mark Noble has hailed West Ham’s ‘brave’ win over Tottenham last weekend.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side became the first team to score and win at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium, after Michail Antonio’s fine finish sealed an impressive 1-0 win.

West Ham captain Noble was full of praise for his side following the victory, hailing what he described as a ‘brave’ performance against a ‘fantastic team’.

“Spurs are a fantastic team and they fully deserved to be where they are in the league, and they fully deserve to be in the Champions League semi-final,” Noble told the West Ham website.

“But on Saturday, the way we played away from home and the way we took the game to them, we were brave and we went there to win the game.

“We got a great goal, we defended brilliantly and in the end I thought we deserved our three points.

“What a time it was to score, the first away goal at this stadium and with his performance he deserved it. He was fantastic.

“It was a great ball from Marko, and him, Felipe and Michail worked really hard to test the Spurs back four and we should probably have scored another couple but we’ll take a 1-0 all day long. What a win for us.”
