West Ham skipper Noble hails ‘fantastic’ win over Spurs

West Ham captain Mark Noble has hailed his side after they won 1-0 at Tottenham on Saturday.

Michail Antonio’s second-half goal was the difference, as West Ham became the first team to both score and win at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side have struggled to find consistency this season, but produced one of their best performances of the campaign to seal a win against their fierce rivals.

The win was just West Ham’s third away from home this season, and Noble was full of praise following his side’s performance.

“The way we’ve played, we thoroughly deserved the result today,” Noble told West Ham TV.

“To come here is hard enough as it is, but to play the way that we did was brilliant. I thought we performed really well today and deserved our win.

“We felt like we could hurt them in some places. I felt, in the second half, we relaxed a bit more on the ball. In the first half, we perhaps tried to score too quickly. We tried to go forward too quick but we played a bit in the second half.

“Michail got a great finish and, all in all, a terrific performance. The first team to win and score here – it goes down in history. What a fantastic day for the Club!”
