On This Day: Noble at the double as Irons Hammer Southampton
Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with RoadX Tyres...
Mark Noble scored twice as West Ham United thrashed Southampton 4-1 in the Premier League on this day eight years ago.
The newly-promoted pair met at the Boleyn Ground on 20 October 2012, with Noble's fortuitous free-kick bouncing in to give the Irons the lead before captain Kevin Nolan doubled the advantage.
Adam Lallana pulled one back for the Saints before Noble's penalty made it 3-1 and Modibo Maiga completed a comprehensive home victory with a long-range curler.
The victory consolidated West Ham's place in the top ten, while Southampton slipped into the bottom three, having conceded 24 goals in their opening eight matches.
