West Ham captain Mark Noble has said that his side’s four-game losing streak in the Premier League is ‘laughable’ following the Hammers 3-0 loss at home to Southampton on Sunday.
The Irons have lost five of their six Premier League games this season and have now conceded 14 goals from their last four league games.
West Ham are now languishing in the relegation zone and Noble said after the Southampton loss that it could have been a lot worse for his side on Sunday had it not had been for some strong saves from Spanish international goalkeeper Adrian.
“If I’m honest, it could have been six in the end had Adrian not pulled off some good saves,” Noble told Sky Sports after the game.
“On the bright side I don’t think it can get any worse. We’ve conceded 11 in three games and it’s laughable and not good enough. We know that.
“To be honest I think we could have kept playing until tonight and I don’t think we would have scored. It doesn’t seem to be going in for us at the minute.”
Noble added that West Ham’s on-field problems will not be solved by bickering and whinging in small circles, but that the playing squad must be accountable for their performances.
“You’ve got to work hard for each other,” Noble added.
“You can’t start talking in your little circles and blaming each other because we’ve got to look at ourselves.
“Luckily enough it’s early in the season and we’ve got a chance to turn it around.”
West Ham’s next chance at redemption comes this Saturday when the Hammers welcome fellow strugglers Middlesbrough to the London Stadium.
