Noble warns Man Utd about tough West Ham game

by Ben Topliss

Mark Noble believes Manchester United will find it tough to win all three points against West Ham United at Upton Park on Sunday.

The Hammers boast an impressive home record, having beaten Liverpool and Manchester City in East London this season and Man United’s away form is poor in comparison to their strong form at Old Trafford.

Man United will come into the fixture this weekend in good form and are looking for a third straight league victory but Noble warns it will not be a straight forward win for Louis van Gaal’s side.

Speaking about the match, Noble said: ”Whether you’ve fifth or sixth in the league, or bottom, three points against Manchester United is still huge.

“We’ve beaten a lot of big teams at our place this year and there’s no reason why we can’t do that against Manchester United on Sunday.”

West Ham have enjoyed a fine campaign so far and currently sit just six points off fourth placed Southampton in the Premier League table.

United have been handed a boost prior to the game as Sam Allardyce insisted he will not risk his players  unless they are 100% fit to play.

West Ham are currently in the midst of an injury crisis with Winston Reid, James Collins, Guy Demel, Doneil Henry, Diego Poyet and Andy Carroll all sidelined. The loss of Carroll is a particularly big blow for Allardyce given how much of a threat he can be in the air.
