West Ham’s away form down to hard work, says captain Mark Noble

The midfielder says that they are still learning as a side, but maintaining their away record at Sunderland was important.

Speaking to the club’s official website, West Ham United captain Mark Noble said that their impressive away form is down to hard work.

The Hammers boast the best away record in the Premier League this season, with impressive wins over the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool under their belts already.

West Ham have scored more goals than anyone on the road so far as well, with Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Sunderland preserving their unbeaten record away from Upton Park.

Noble has said that record so far is down to the hard work from the side.

“It’s down to hard work, simple as,” he told whufc.com. “We've got the ability to score goals in the team now, but it’s hard work and togetherness as a team.

"We're all in it together and that's the main thing. That's why we're getting results away from home.”

West Ham still learning, insists captain Noble

It was a disappointing day at the Stadium of Light for Slaven Bilic’s side, with them finding themselves two goals down at one stage before Carl Jenkinson and then Dimitri Payet eventually leveled the score.

West Ham would have hoped for a better result against the Black Cats given how poorly they have started, with them currently sitting joint second bottom of the Premier League with Newcastle.

Noble, though, saw the positives, and has said that the side is still learning and has maintained their unbeaten run going was the most important thing.

“We're still learning, we've got players who are learning how to play in this league,” he added.

“We showed a lot of character to come back from where we were and probably, in the end, should have won it. We keep the unbeaten run going, that's the most important thing.”
