West Ham skipper Mark Noble spoke to reporters in the aftermath of his side's woeful 4-1 defeat to Swansea City yesterday, and shared what was discussed in the dressing room amongst the players after the game, as quoted by the club's official website.

The Hammers really could not afford to lose to the Swans yesterday, especially in the manner that they did, and they now sit precariously in 14th position in the Premier League table, just three points clear of safety.

These must be worrying times to be involved with West Ham. David Moyes' side have won just one game from their last six Premier League outings, and they have embarked on their poor run at the worst possible time, with teams in and around them in the table picking up points.

Noble spoke to reporters, and admitted that his side were quite simply not good enough, sharing what was said in the dressing room after the game, as quoted by the club's official website:

“Nothing seemed to go right and it was one of those games where if something could have gone wrong went wrong. It’s down to us now to pick ourselves up. We’ve spoken in the dressing room and we need to put this behind us as there is no point dwelling on it. It was a bad result and a bad performance, but we’ve got nine more games and we need to pick points up. I can’t believe how many fans turned up, to be honest. We drove through the snow on Friday and it took us just under seven hours to get here on a coach, but it was a poor performance from us."

Next up for the Hammers is a huge clash with Burnley at the London Stadium on Saturday, and nothing less than a win will do, as Moyes' men look to put some distance between themselves and the bottom three.
