Mark Noble admitted to mixed feelings following Monday night’s 1-1 draw with Stoke City, after a dominant performance did not get the full reward it merited.

The Hammers needed a last minute volley from Andy Carroll to rescue a point in the end – a result which kept the Potters seven points behind their hosts – but the skipper felt it should have been more.

After having three goals ruled out during a dramatic second period, Noble’s frustration was clear but given the circumstances of Carroll’s late goal, the No16 was grateful for the big striker’s intervention.

Five seasons ago, Declan Rice was playing Academy football for Chelsea, only for the Blues to release him at the age of 14.

The schoolboy was initially left 'deflated', his dream of playing for the club his family supported shattered, but within 48 hours he had been snapped up by West Ham United - and the rest is history.

Chicharito has explained how his clinical equaliser at Chelsea was down to far more than just chance.

While some strikers might hit and hope when presented with a similar opportunity on such a big stage, West Ham United’s Mexican marksman instead weighed up his options in a split second and sent an unstoppable curling shot into the bottom corner of Thibaut Courtois’ net.
