has been thrilled West Ham’s recent performances after they won 3-0 in their penultimate game of the season against Southampton on Saturday.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side secured their second successive Premier League victory, following on from their 1-0 win at rivals Tottenham last week, with a convincing three-goal win against Southampton at the London Stadium.

And midfielder Noble claims that the Irons totally deserved all six points in those matches.

Speaking to West Ham’s official club website Noble said, “The last two weeks have been fantastic, we didn’t want to waste Saturday after last week. Six points at Spurs and Southampton at home were two great results and fully deserved.”

“I think we’ve made real progress with the way we’ve played this season, in a certain style. Even away to Spurs, we played a certain way.

“Don’t forget we missed Dec [Rice] and Felipe [Anderson] on Saturday but Pedro [Obiang] came in and was fantastic and Grady [Diangana] came in who hasn’t played for a while and it’s been really good.”

OPINION

West Ham’s Mark Noble is correct to praise the recent performances of his team-mates following two successive Premier League wins, at Tottenham and at home to Southampton on Saturday. The academy graduate, who turns 32 on Wednesday, is also right to suggest that the Hammers are making progress towards the end of the season, as Manuel Pellegrini attempts to alter their style of play. West Ham’s progress this year is highlighted by the fact that they can secure a top half Premier League finish for the first time in four seasons, if they win at Watford next weekend on the final day of the season. It is also shown in their improved points return at the London Stadium this campaign, with Saturday’s win against Southampton meaning they have recorded 31 points at home this season, the most they have managed in a season since moving from Upton Park. West Ham supporters will be hoping that they can continue that progress into next season,
