West Ham United icon Shaka Hislop has lavished praise on Hammers duo Mark Noble and James Collins on the club's official website, as the duo continue to remain crucial to the east Londoners.

Noble, 30, is set to become a one-club man as he is in his 14th season as a West Ham player since making his debut in January 2005 for the Hammers against Sheffield Wednesday in the Carabao Cup.

Fellow veteran Collins is in his second spell at West Ham after turning out for the likes of Aston Villa and Cardiff City and is arguably the Hammers' second-best defender to Angelo Ogbonna on current form.

Speaking to the Hammers' official site, Hislop lauded both long-term West Ham servants ahead of their trip to Liverpool on Sunday, as they continue to remain incredibly important to Moyes' first-team plans.

“It’s incredible to see them still going strong, Ginge in particular,” Hislop said. “Nobes was just coming through when I was there. He was a young player coming up with a lot of talent and he was a huge prospect. I like Mark Noble a lot.

“You could tell he was a big player for the club and to see him play an entire career at West Ham is outstanding. “I remember how reliable he [Collins] was. That was one thing you could always say about Ginge, that he was reliable.

"You knew exactly what you were going to get out of him, it was always going to be 100% every single time and that, for me, was a joy to play behind."

Collins is currently in the final months of his West Ham contract at the London Stadium with no new deal yet to be offered to the Welsh veteran, despite fans and pundits alike suggesting that he deserves a new contract.

The Hammers travel to Anfield ahead of Saturday's clash against Liverpool and fans will be hoping they can exact revenge on Jurgen Klopp's side following their 4-1 loss at the London Stadium earlier in the season.
