West Ham United have had a difficult season and the fans would have been forgiven for fearing the worst ahead of Saturday’s clash against Chelsea at the London Stadium.
Prior to the match, manager David Moyes had failed to oversee a victory, instead recording three defeats and a draw in the Premier League.
On Saturday, the Hammers managed to keep Chelsea at bay and in the end earned a 1-0 victory thanks to Marko Arnautovic’s goal six minutes into the first half.
Most of the West Ham players took to Twitter after the final whistle to post messages of joy in winning their first league game since September 30.
Club captain Mark Noble was one of the West Ham stars who expressed his thoughts on social media.
Rather than focus solely on the result, the midfielder mentioned a bizarre moment in which he rested his foot on Michail Antonio while the England international was on the floor.

Noble has received criticism from fans over the past year or so, but he caught West Ham’s following in a good mood on this occasion.
