Noble: West Ham looking forward to Manchester United clash

Mark Noble says West Ham are looking forward to their clash at Manchester United this weekend, despite the club’s poor away form.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side have struggled away from the London Stadium this season, and travel to Old Trafford to face top-four chasing United looking to bounce back from consecutive defeats to Everton and Chelsea.

Captain Noble insists his side took belief from their performance in Monday night’s 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge, and says the squad are relishing the prospect of facing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side this weekend.

“We’re looking forward to going to Manchester United on Saturday,” Noble told the official West Ham website.

“We were encouraged by our second-half performance at Stamford Bridge, it’s our last away game outside London and if we can reproduce the sort of performance we produced at home back in September, when we beat them 3-1, then no one will be more delighted than me.

“Our main worry is that, away from home, we’ve scored just one goal since this year — and that was my penalty against Crystal Palace in February.”
