finished the 18/19 season on a high, beating Watford 4-1 to ensure a top-ten finish under and Match of the Day pundit Ian Wright heaped praise on Mark Noble.

The West Ham veteran scored two goals and played brilliantly throughout, and Wright pointed out that the 32-year-old never gets more credit for what he does.

Talking on  the anlysis of the game on Match of the Day (BBC1, Sunday, 10.30pm), Wright heaped praise on Michail before pointing out Noble’s contribution to the game.

“Great touch from Mark Noble,” Wright said. “Mark Nobles’s skill from here is fantastic. He doesn’t get a lot of credit for this sort of stuff but that’s fantastic.”

OPINION

Mark Noble is West Ham, through and through. He came up through the ranks at the club and is now homing in on 500 appearances. He opened the scoring on Sunday with a rare goal from open play in the 15th minute before adding West Ham’s fourth from the penalty spot in the 78th minute. That was his fifth of the season where he also added five assists too. Manuel and rounded off a fantastic performance from West Ham and fans will be hugely optimistic going into next season after an up and down 18/19. The nucleus of the squad is there and with a couple of quality additions in the summer, we think West Ham could kick on under Pellegrini and push for a top-seven place. They won the last three games of the season, scoring eight goals and only conceding one. That’s in marked contrast to the start of the season when West Ham must have been fearing the worst after losing their first four games when they conceded ten and scored just two.
