Noble says he holds no grudge against Pogba after burst up

Grant SmithMay 14, 2018

While the football on offer wasn't particularly entertaining, the game heated up after West Ham skipper Noble was brought down by Pogba in the 87th minute as the match fizzled out.

David Moyes will be hoping he can turn this form around for the home side on Thursday evening, as he gets his first chance to overturn United's Mourinho as West Ham manager.

Ex-Premier League forward Craig Bellamy feels that United's squad is lacking in quality but is also shorn of an attacking philosophy.

West Ham defender Pablo Zabaleta insists he's happy where he is. Against Brighton, at half time I told the players they were going to lose and tonight at half time I said we would win.

"He has achieved so much in the game, but I'd rather he didn't provide the London Stadium crowd with a memorable swansong, after all, I'm still a West Ham supporter". "We need a point to say that only one team was better than us, we need a point to say that 18 teams were not as good as us". It's a big achievement for us. And having escaped the threat of relegation, they can afford to breathe easier as they head into Sunday's match against Everton.

However, that failed to provoke an immediate response as West Ham posed the early threat.

Mark Arnautovic was the sole bright spot for David Moyes' team, regularly beating his man easily but found himself isolated too often and David de Gea wasn't truly tested over the course of 90 minutes.

"The referee handled it well", said Moyes after the West Ham captain appeared to grab the French midfielder by the neck in a scuffle.

Jesse Lingard was first to be denied with a fiercely struck long-range effort before Adrian showed quick reflexes to save from Alexis Sanchez and then get back on his feet to turn Shaw's effort onto the post.

And the game was reflective of an end-of-season affair, with the only moment of note in the later stages being a confrontation between both sets of players following Pogba's foul on Noble.
