Mark Noble has given his support to Hammers boss David Moyes in quotes to Sky Sports. The skipper has yet to make an appearance under the new regime, but he spoke of the positive changes that have taken place at West Ham United since Slaven Bilic was replaced in early November:

"I'm not going to stand here and say it's been fantastic because, for me, football is not enjoyable unless you're winning games.

"I love to win. We're in a results business now where you have to win games and we haven't done that.

"What I will say is that it's been good under the new manager, he's set a stall out for how he wants to play. Some of the performances have been really good but the results haven't gone the way we wanted. You can slowly see it turning around. If you don't stick together you'll be in trouble.

"I've been in dressing rooms where the atmosphere has been much worse. We've got a good bunch of honest players that it hasn't gone for them this season. I can see the small changes in the things we're doing that hopefully, the results turn around."

Last time out, West Ham suffered a narrow defeat to Manchester City, in a performance that drew praise from fans. But as we know, the club still are still deep into the relegation zone with fixtures against Chelsea and Arsenal on the horizon. We need to pick up points in these tough clashes to hope for an escape from relegation.

Noble continued:

"We're going to have to pull a couple of big guns out the hat, Chelsea are a fantastic team, I've watched a lot of them, they've got great players.

"But we played really well against Manchester City last weekend and if we play like that we'll have a chance."

We’re going to need to get some big results in these London derbies to avoid being cut adrift.
