West Ham United suffered their second successive defeat at the start of the 2018-19 Premier League campaign when they lost at home to Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.
The Hammers would have been looking for all three points following their 4-0 defeat at Liverpool on the opening weekend of the season, but suffered a 2-1 loss to the Cherries.
Tottenham Hotspur fans do not exactly need help when it comes to poking fun at their bitter rivals West Ham, but Hammers captain Mark Noble has provided them with some ammunition.
Indeed, Noble did not exactly cover himself in glory immediately before Bournemouth’s equaliser, with Callum Wilson allowed to run away from the midfielder far too easily.

Wilson’s leveller was followed by a header from Steve Cook, which ensured that Bournemouth would leave the English capital with all three points.
The Tottenham fans enjoyed the clip of Noble struggling to keep up on social media, and many have taken to Twitter to poke fun at the Englishman for his recent struggles.

Couldn’t lace the boots of Nethercott and we all remember how awful he was

I typically rate Noble (for his heart, not skill), but that was so awful

Jeez. He looks like a knackered old man struggling… and I should now!

In fairness I think they mean a few years ago. Surely can’t mean now. He’s finished
