The 33-year-old Hammers skipper put in a top class performance against the Villans. The Canning Town born ace rolled back the years and reminded everyone that he still has so much to offer David Moyes’ side.

The midfielder dictated the tempo of the game in the middle of the park at the London Stadium today. And he gave the Villa midfield and back-line problems all match.

Noble has received heavy criticism from some sections of the West Ham supporters this season.

He clearly isn’t the player he once was, but that doesn’t mean that he isn’t still incredibly important for the Hammers.

Perhaps he won’t be playing week in week out next season, but his leadership and influence in the West Ham dressing room cannot be underestimated.

Noble is Moyes’s on-field Lieutenant. And when the 33-year-old is in the mood that he was in today, he is a real asset for the Hammers.
