Mark Noble is set to return from injury this Saturday when West Ham travel to Burnley looking to build on our impressive start to the season.
Noble hasn’t featured since picking up a calf injury in the 3-1 victory over Liverpool at Upton Park last month, however Sam Allardyce has been quick to state that it is not a given that he’ll slot straight back into the starting lineup due to the excellent form been shown by the squad in recent weeks.
‘’I don’t know if it’s a given (if Noble will come straight back into the line-up), but these are the decisions you have to make as a manager,” said Allardyce.
”Sometimes you have to disappoint players for benefit of the team, you can’t play everyone. My duty as manager is to make sure the strongest team possible plays against Burnley against on Saturday.”
