West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble feels that the club are not scared of away fixtures anymore, with a 2-2 draw last weekend at Chelsea acting as proof.

The Hammers have enjoyed a superb Premier League campaign so far, sitting fifth in the table and being just a single point outside the top four Champions League spots.

But it is their away form that has impressed their skipper so much. Slaven Bilic’s side have come back with maximum points from the Emirates Stadium, the Etihad Stadium and Anfield this year, while games against Manchester United and the Blues ended in a draw.

And the Englishman is proud of the statistics, insisting that with the quality of players they have in their squad games away from home are a welcome challenge, as his side look to end their campaign on a successful note at the Boleyn Ground.

“It shows how far the club has come that we are coming to places like Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford and we are disappointed to only be coming away with a draw”, the 28-year-old was quoted as saying by the club’s official website.


You can see by the way we are playing and passing the ball and that it is a credit to the team and the players.

“We can come to these big clubs now and not have that fear factor.

"We fully believe that we can win. We got the point against Chelsea but we were unlucky not to come away with all three points”, Noble added.
