Mark Noble: No player works harder than Matt Jarvis at West Ham

West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble has praised the work rate of winger Matt Jarvis.

West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble told the club’s website that no one works harder at the club than wide man Matty Jarvis.

Jarvis has struggled to get much game time this season under manager Sam Allardyce, making just 11 appearances in the Premier League.

However, that doesn’t appear to have knocked his confidence and motivation to try and grab the attention of the boss in order to get some game time before the end of the campaign.

“I’ll take myself out of the equation and say Matty Jarvis (hardest worker). Obviously he hasn’t had much playing time but he’s in the gym every day and he trains hard every single day,” said Noble.

Jarvis may well be on his way out of the club this summer, with his contract due to expire in 2017.

If Sam Allardyce stays on as manager, he may see that as a sign that he’s not going to get the level of playing time he’s looking for.

As a potential signing for another side, he’s got a lot going for him with his pace and trickery in wide areas making him a very difficult player to deal with for any opposition full back.

However, if a new manager comes in, he might get the chance to prove why he can have an impact on West Ham’s future over the next few seasons.

His work rate will definitely work in his favour regardless.
