Cape Town - West Ham United captain Mark Noble wants to see the Irons clinch victory against Stoke City on Saturday to cap off a fantastic week for the club.

David Moyes' side ground out a 1-0 victory over defending Premier League champions Chelsea at the London Stadium last weekend, before holding Arsenal to a goalless draw on Wednesday.

"We needed results and the last two we got against two of the best teams in the league," he said, according to the club's official website. "It’s been fantastic, but now we have to go and beat Stoke away.

"They’re in a similar position to us and we need to get three points there, and it would top off a fantastic week."

After the Stoke game, West Ham will host Newcastle United. When asked about the importance of the two games, Noble added: "I would agree [the next two games are bigger than the three we've just had]. We need to pick up some more points and keep clean sheets, and try to score some goals.

"It is going to be a battle but I think anywhere from ninth or tenth downwards, if you get a couple of wins, you’re back up with them. This league, at the minute, is so tight, but we’re looking a lot stronger. If we can keep that form going into these couple of games I’m sure we will be fine."

Kick-off is at 17:00 SA time.
