Mark Noble has revealed one of the best pieces of skill he has seen in his time as a West Ham player.

The Hammers holding midfielder told the Premier League of the experience he had with Manuel Lanzini in training.

Lanzini bagged eight goals and five assists last seasons and has also proved himself as a star on the training pitch.

“Lanzini nut-megged three players in a row, it was tremendous,” Noble told the Premier League Twitter account. “I don’t even think about nut-megging people so how he did three in a row I don’t know, incredible.”

‘Nut-megging’ or the act of putting the ball through an opponents legs is regarded as one of the most difficult skills to execute in football.

Lanzini is now widely regarded as one of West Ham’s most outstanding players following an impressive debut campaign, after initially arriving on loan from Arabian club Al Jazira last summer.

The forward has made his loan move permanent in April in a deal worth £9million.

Lanzini has scored a career total of 31 goals and 27 assists across 176 matches and will be hoping to outline his credentials as one of the Premier League’s most lethal midfielders next season.

In other West Ham team news, chairman David Gold revealed he is confident his team can get something from their Premier League opener against Chelsea on Monday night.
