Mark NobleWest Ham have received a welcome boost ahead of their Premier League clash with Burnley this weekend. Mark Noble is fit again and available for selection should Sam Allardyce choose to bring back the Englishman to the Hammers starting line-up.

Big Sam said: “Mark has trained for most of this week so he should be fine.

“Hopefully he can come back in and make a big contribution like he has done for the time he has been with me at West Ham.

“I don’t know whether it is a given or not [that he will start]. The sooner you get all your players fit the bigger decisions you have to make as a manager.

“That puts you in a better position even though those decisions are big ones because you are going to start disappointing players on a more regular basis.”

I know Noble seems to divide opinion but, before he was sidelined, him and Alex Song seemed to be building a decent partnership in the middle of the park.

Noble will no doubt make the bench for the trip to Turf Moor, however, I wouldn’t be surprised to see him starting given how much Big Sam clearly loves him…

    If fit Noble should play! End of!

    Nobes will definitely start if he is fully fit because Kouyate is still out, the third spot is Downings and the fourth midfielder will be either Amalfitano or Zarate –

    Noble will play. He doesn’t achieve very much apart from taking the ball from our defenders, running into a blind alley and passing the ball back to the defender – which usually produces a HOOF because the defender has been put under pressure. However, look on the positive side, it boosts Nobles passing stats and that will please his boyfriends.
