Bobby Zamora has stated that West Ham played “very, very well” during their 1-0 win over Tottenham on Friday night at the London Stadium.
The former Hammers striker singled out midfielder Mark Noble, who produced a good performance in the middle of the park.
Attacking midfielder Manuel Lanzini opened the scoring midway through the second half when he was left unmarked in the penalty area.
Spurs tried in vain to pull, at the very least, a goal back, but their Premier League title hopes were shattered with that defeat.
Zamora, who represented both clubs during his career, was clearly pleased that Slaven Bilic’s side secured all three points.
“Great win tonight, West Ham, fair play,” Zamora wrote on his personal Twitter account. “Played very, very well. Well done my boy, Mark Noble.”

Over the course of the season, Noble has played 35 matches in all competitions, scoring five goals added with two assists.
The club’s senior player last found the back of the net in February when he helped his team secure a 3-1 win away at Southampton.
Nonetheless, after the three points on Friday, West Ham moved into the top ten as they remain hopeful of ending the season on a high after a poor campaign.
It also damages their London rivals hopes of catching leaders Chelsea in the title race as they could extend their lead at the top of the table to seven points if they beat Middlesbrough on Monday night.
