Mark Noble was delighted to bounce back to form against Middlesbrough.
Mark Noble was delighted to bounce back from his poor outing against Blackburn with a fine display against Middlesbrough.
The 19-year-old midfielder was whipped off at half-time against Rovers, but was superb in The Hammers' weekend win over Boro.
Noble was pleased with his contribution against Gareth Southgate's troops and believes West Ham are now a side on the up.
"I'm really happy," he told the club's official website. "I just wanted to get back from the Blackburn game after being brought off at half-time.
"I was pleased I was in the team and I think I proved to the manager that I should be there.
"We're in a tough position now but we're looking up. And I think all of the teams directly above us are looking over their shoulders at us."
