West Ham have improved significantly under the guidance of Manuel Pellegrini this season and a feel-good factor surrounds the London Stadium.

The Hammers faced a difficult schedule of fixtures at the start of the season but have a more favourable run of games over the course of the busy festive season.

A comfortable 3-0 victory over Newcastle United at the weekend presented the perfect platform to build upon in the coming weeks – and it seems skipper Mark Noble is ready to take on whoever comes his way.

The experienced midfielder is not afraid to go outside his comfort zone and he issued a challenge to snooker legend John Parrott in an epic clash of crazy snooker.

Noble formed a team with Marko Arnautovic and six-time snooker world champion Steve Davis to take on Parrott, Javier Hernandez and Robert Snodgrass in a showdown that featured hilarious misses and impressive trick shots.
