With Marko Arnautovic, Manuel Lanzini, and Arthur Masuaku amongst West Ham's long absentee list, many commentators saw this encounter as a golden chance for Crystal Palace to win three points on the road.
The Hammers did go behind mid-way through the first half after Christian Benteke headed The Eagles in front off a Townsend cross but were level just before the break. Though Joao Mario was making his full debut for the club, it was his strike partner Chicharito Hernandez who won his side a penalty after he was fouled by James Tomkins. Mark Noble made no mistake from the spot. Andros Townsend had Palace's other good chance of the game but Adrian was equal to hit whilst James McArthur could have done more with a header which missed the target. Moyes' West Ham are undefeated since before Christmas while Palace are now three points clear of the drop zone. Jan 30 - 4:54 PM

West Ham midfielder Mark Noble has a chance to return for Tuesday's match against West Brom.

The West Ham skipper has missed the last three matches after suffering a hamstring injury the 3-0 win at Stoke City on December 16th. Noble resumed individual training this week and is close to making his full first-team return, though it's unclear if he will be fit enough to start when the Baggies visit the London Stadium: "He’s trained for a couple of days. He’s not joined us yet, but he’s making progress," said manager David Moyes. If Noble isn't ready to return, expect Cheikhou Kouyate and Pedro Obiang to start in midfield.

Mark Noble was forced off with a hamstring injury at Stoke City last weekend and won't be available for Saturday's match against Newcastle.

The West Ham captain picked up the initial hamstring injury in the goalless draw with Arsenal on December 13th and aggravated the injury after scoring during the first-half of the 3-0 win at Stoke last Saturday. Cheikou Kouyate is set to be available after missing the last three league matches with his own hamstring injury and could start in place of the injured Noble. Youngsters Declan Rice and Domingos Quina impressed in the 1-0 Carabao Cup defeat at Arsenal and could potentially factor in, but Sam Byram, Jose Fonte and Edimilson Fernandes are all still unavailable, with the latter undergoing ankle surgery earlier this week.

Mark Noble has been unable to recover from a knee knock and will miss Saturday's match at West Brom.

Noble sustained a knee injury in training last Friday and was a late omission from the side that defeated Huddersfield Town. Despite returning to training on Thursday, the Hammers captain won't be fit to face the Baggies on Saturday. The absence of Noble should see Slaven Bilic name an unchanged side for the trip The Hawthorns. Pedro Obiang and Cheikhou Kouyate will be expected to start in holding midfield roles in a 3-4-2-1, while Decan Rice could see time off the bench.

Mark Noble missed out on Monday as West Ham United secured their first Premier League win of the season against Huddersfield Town.

There was no mention of a problem prior to kick-off but the club later confirmed that the Hammers captain had sustained a knee injury in training on Friday. The extent of the problem is not yet known, but even if Noble is fit for Saturday, then Slaven Bilic is unlikely to tinker with his side too much ahead of a tricky trip to West Brom. Winston Reid returned as stand in skipper while Andy Carroll was making his first appearance since April. Pedro Obiang and Cheikhou Kouyate were handed recalls to anchor the midfield in a 3-4-2-1 with Jose Fonte back alongside James Collins - Ogbonna paid the price for a poor performance at Newcastle. The victory takes West Ham off the bottom and leaves Bournemouth and Crystal Palace as the only two remaining Premier League sides who are yet to secure a point.

West Ham United captain Mark Noble will miss the last two matches of the season after it was decided he will undergo surgery to address a "long-standing" abdominal injury on Saturday.

It has been nothing short of an injury filled season for West Ham, with Noble the latest midfielder to suffer an early end to the 2016/17 season. Pedro Obiang was ruled out for the term in March, Hammer of the Year Michail Antonio was lost in April, and Cheikhou Kouyate had wrist surgery earlier this week. According to West Ham Head of Medical and Sports Science Stijn Vendenbroucke, Noble had been playing through the "painful condition" for quite some time, but had opted to delay the operation as long as possible. Vandenbroucke said: "We attended an appointment with the specialist on the evening before the Tottenham game and it was deemed that the surgery was now urgent, he played in the game and played a big part in our victory that ensured the Club's safety."

West Ham will be without club captain Mark Noble for the next two matches because of yellow card accumulation.

Noble picked up his 10th booking of the season last weekend against Swansea City, resulting a two-match ban. This means the skipper won't be available for the trip to Sunderland (GW33) and following home game with Everton (GW34). As a result, Edimilson Fernandes and Havard Nordveit will be in contention start alongside Cheikhou Kouyate in central midfield.

West Ham United skipper Mark Noble missed last Saturday's 3-2 defeat by Leicester City but is expected to be fit for the club's match with Hull City on April 1st.

Noble suffered a knock that forced him to miss the match with Leicester but resumed training with the first-team this week and will be fit face Hull City, according to Head of Medical and Sports Science Stijn Vandenbroucke. The news is a big boost for the Hammers with defensive midfielder Pedro Obiang, who underwent ankle surgery on Tuesday in London, ruled out for the remainder of the season. Without Obiang, manager Slaven Bilic will likely move Cheikhou Kouyate into a central midfield role alongside Noble for the rest of the season.

West Ham United captain Mark Noble has been ruled out for Saturday's match against Leicester City.

The Hammers captain, who picked up a knock at Bournemouth, will be the only major absentee for the clash at the London Stadium. According to the club's most recent update from the treatment room, Noble picked up a knock in training prior to the match against Chelsea and suffered another knock in the same area of his body at the weekend. "He will miss Saturday’s game against Leicester City and a week of rest and rehab will help to prepare him for the three-game week coming up against Hull, Arsenal and Swansea," Head of Medical and Sports Science Stijn Vandenbroucke wrote in his late fitness update. Without Noble, Cheikhou Kouyate could return to a central midfield role with Sam Byram then likely to slot in at right-back.

West Ham are waiting to discover the extent of Mark Noble’s injury after he was forced off with an ankle problem in the second half of Saturdays win over Middlesbrough.

"We have to wait to see the results of a scan," Slaven Bilic said after taking three-points from the Riverside. "To lose the skipper, who is a leader and a mentor in the middle, he keeps the team in shape, it was a blow." West Ham are still without Cheikhou Kouyate and Andre Ayew who are away on international duty while Dimitri Payet continues to train away from the first team squad. There was better news however, regarding Andy Carroll, who was replaced as a precaution on Saturday. The in-form striker complained of muscular tightness and was withdrawn following his two-goals midway through the second half: "I didn’t train all week and had a couple of days off, so I didn’t want to risk anything," he said.

A Mark Noble penalty separated the sides at the London Stadium on Saturday.

Hull City delivered a plucky performance as they fought to escape the relegation zone against their rivals. They hit the post three times (from Mbokani, a Noble clearance and Andrew Robertson) before Tom Huddlestone was adjudged to have fouled Michail Antonio in the 76th minute. Replays showed that the Englishman was unfortunate given that contact was minimal. Mark Noble made no mistake from the spot after getting lucky in West Ham's midweek fixture from the same situation. It was the Hammers' first time winning two PL games in a row at their new home, while the loss sealed the Tigers' 7th straight loss on the road.

Mark Noble secured all three points with a first-half goal as West Ham defeated Burnley 1-0 at the Olympic Stadium.

West Ham secured a vital win thanks to Mark Noble. Noble's goal was a finish from close range after his effort from the penalty mark was denied by Tom Heaton, following a foul by Ben Mee on Winston Reid in the area. The goal was deserved as Noble and Pedro Obiang both hit the woodwork with brilliants efforts, while Burnley's Matt Lowton also denied Aaron Cresswell with a goal-saving block. The win coincided with the return of Cheikhou Kouyate, as the Hammers significantly out possessed and out shot Burnley. West Ham will look win back-to-back matches for the first time since October when they face Hull City at home this Saturday.

West Ham United will welcome Diafra Sakho back for the first time this season following his recovery from injury.

The Senegalese striker was on the verge of completing a summer move away from the London Stadium after a fee with West Brom had been agreed. But, the deal fell through due to concerns over an ongoing back problem and Sakho has spent the last four months working his way to full fitness. Strike partner Andy Carroll is progressing well but won’t be considered: "Maybe in a couple of weeks he will be able to train with us, it might even be earlier." Winston Reid "is back" and will be hoping to earn an instant recall while James Collins, who missed out playing for Wales because of a calf injury, will be included in the match day squad. Mark Noble is suspended after receiving his fifth yellow card of the season against Stoke in game week 11.

Mark Noble led West Ham to a huge win over West Brom by a score of 3-0.

Noble scored twice to give West Ham a very comfortable lead. He remains a solid midfielder but fantasy managers shouldn't expect to see this type of performance more than once a season. The other goal came from Cheikhou Kouyate, who is worth playing in very deep leagues only.

Mark Noble did what Saido Berahino couldn't on the weekend and converted two penalties in West Ham's 3-1 win over Watford at Upton Park.

The Hammers kept their momentum going with an emphatic 3-1 win over sliding Watford in mid-week Premier League action. Dimitri Payet fed the resurgent Andy Carroll for the Hammers opener and then it was a Mark Noble penalty on either side of Sebastien Prodl's goal that yielded the final score. Adrian also made a big play denying Troy Deeney from the spot in stoppage time to ensure that the Hornets didn't have a late comeback in them.
