West Ham ace hails the ‘best form of his life’

West Ham midfielder Mark NobleWest Ham midfielder Mark Noble believes he is playing the best football of his life under Sam Allardyce, according to reports from talkSPORT.

The midfielder, who has been with the Londoners for his entire career, is delighted with his form during the club’s return to the Premier League.

He believes that Allardyce has been a big factor in both his and the Hammer’s recent performances, praising his bosses effect as the club look to establish themselves in the top-flight.

“I’m thoroughly enjoying it (life under Allardyce),” He told talkSPORT.

“I’m probably playing the best football I’ve played in a long, long while.

“I’m settled in my position. I’m settled at the club and obviously I’ve just signed a new contract, so I was happy with that.

“I’m just looking forward to being out on the pitch every week. I keep working harder and harder in training every week, trying to improve, trying to get better and I just want to keep working hard and get performances under my belt.”

Noble has built up a solid partnership with fellow midfielder Kevin Nolan, which was key in the club’s promotion last season.

Whilst the captain grabs most of the headlines, Noble’s contributions are equally effective, as he provides a shield for the backline as well as ammunition for the forwards through his set-piece delivery.

The 25-year-old has been capped at almost every level of England’s youth set-up, but has, as of yet, missed out on making his senior debut.
