Mark Noble: Insists Hammers can cope without Andy Carroll

The Hammers will be without star forward Carroll as he serves a three-match ban for violent conduct, and is set to miss the upcoming games against Aston Villa, Norwich and Southampton.

But Noble is still confident that West Ham will be able to build on last Saturday's 2-0 victory over Swansea City.

The 26-year-old told the London Evening Standard: "Andy being suspended is obviously a massive miss for us.

"For him to be back the way he was and then to miss him for another three games is going to be tough but we have to dig in and get results without him.

"Everyone will have to play their part to try and get us three points away from home.

"We're three points off eleventh, so getting ourselves back in that pack with the win against Swansea was important.

"It would be good to go to Aston Villa and get the three points before another winnable home game against Norwich City.

"We're looking up rather than down at the moment and even though we're in the bottom three, I'm sure we can claw our way back."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
