Mark Noble has praised West Ham United’s Felipe Anderson to the club’s official Twitter account.

Anderson has been with West Ham for just over a year now, and he has quickly established himself as one of the most dangerous attacking players at the London Stadium.

Anderson has won plaudits with his dribbling ability and creativity.

However, Noble feels that Anderson should get more credit for his work-rate, as he always tracks back and helps his teammates out.

 

“Everyone sees the skills and the running back, but his work-rate off the ball, getting back and tackling, is fantastic,” Noble said.

“He’s a really special player.”

West Ham paid big money to sign Anderson from Lazio back in 2018, with the winger joining for £42 million (Guardian).

It has proven to be a good investment for the Hammers, as the 26-year-old’s value has only gone up since then.

Anderson will be absolutely vital to West Ham this season, as Manuel Pellegrini’s men look to break into the top six after an encouraging start to the campaign.

The Hammers are next in action against Aston Villa on Monday evening.
