After Noble missed a last-minute penalty against Manchester United, David Moyes’ words came back to haunt him.
Hammers was testing 2-1 when he was awarded a spot kick and Moyes sent Noble to secure a double.
But Noble, 34, was rejected by David de Gea, just weeks after Moyes was increasing his captain’s ability to 12 yards.
After Michael Antonio missed a penalty against Newcastle in August, Moyes said: “It is unfortunate that the Premier League is not like American football where we can remove Mark from the bench just to take a penalty because They are our experts.
“He’s incredible and he keeps telling me he’s got one of the best conversion records in Europe.”
But Noble defeated his manager on the big chance, and West Ham ended up empty handed.
Despite his bold call and embarrassing interpretation, Moises was not too disappointed as he believed the alternative was appropriate.
After the match, he told Sky Sports: “Look at his record, his record is very good.

“I had time to think about it. I think I would have been more disappointed if I hadn’t decided.
“If I hadn’t decided, I would be angry with myself.”
Moises was surprisingly accepting the rare memory of the Nobel, yet it came just minutes after Jesse Langard defeated the winner of Manchester United.
The attacking midfielder has been linked with a move to West Ham all summer, but to no avail.
And he showed why Moises wanted to sign him with a great curling shot that hit the top corner late.
