Manuel Pellegrini’s side will hope that is a good omen as Spurs travel to the London Stadium on Saturday. The Hammers have won just two of their eight Premier League games so far this season, so Tottenham are arguably the favourites heading to their 15th-placed rivals.
And the hosts will have to contend with a Harry Kane, who appears to have rediscovered his form after a sluggish start to the season.
The 25-year-old has scored six goals in the Premier League and Champions League in 2018/19 and also produced two assists in England’s 3-2 win away at Spain in the Nations League on Monday.
“As a fellow player, you try to analyse his strengths and weaknesses and honestly — I don’t see too many of those,” Noble said.
"As a striker he’s great in the air, very good with his left foot, brilliant with his right and he’s quicker than a lot of people think.”
Kane certainly has a history against West Ham. The World Cup Golden Boot winner scored twice in this fixture last season as Tottenham won 3-2 at the London Stadium in September.
So Noble and co have a big challenge on their hands keeping Spurs’ number ten quiet on Saturday.
