On New Year's Day, the Hammers were second from bottom in the Premier League table and three points from safety.

But by May, they had moved six places up the standings to 13th to finish seven points clear of the relegation zone.

Starting with a goalless draw against Chelsea on January 29, Sam Allardyce's side went on a run of six wins and one draw in 10 games to secure their Premier League status for another season.

And Noble admitted: "It was a tight league and a couple of results can push you up the table.

"We managed to win four in February, then beat Hull at home and Sunderland away to confirm our safety.

"To beat Spurs in the last home game of the season finished it off nicely.

"It has been tough but we have finished 13th and we were second from bottom in December.

"It is a credit to the lads and everyone involved in the club that we got ourselves out of that and ended up 13th."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
