'Outstanding', 'Deserves a lot more love' – West Ham fans rave over £2.6m-a-year man v Stoke

West Ham United earned a point against Stoke City in the Premier League on Monday night with a 1-1 draw at the London Stadium

A 90th-minute late leveller from Andy Carroll, back in attack in his first game for the club since January, handed the Irons a point in a tough contest between two sides struggling at the bottom of the league.

Despite failing to take maximum points from a game where David Moyes’ side offered little in the way of an offensive threat, supporters were delighted with the performance of Mark Noble, who reportedly earns £2.6million a year in wages, and felt was outstanding again.

The 30-year-old has been a mainstay in the side since 2006 but despite being in and out of the team throughout the current campaign, he has been integral to their fightback from the brink.

Now 14th in the table, West Ham are seven points above the drop and all but mathematically certain of their Premier League status for next season.

After the draw, supporters took to Twitter to remark on Noble’s display which many considered as outstanding and that he alone was one of the main reasons behind the point they gained from the result.
