Mark Noble says West Ham's performances are improving under David Moyes but mean nothing until results get better.

Moyes is yet to win as West Ham manager since taking over from Slaven Bilic in early November, earning just a point in his four games in charge.

Noble, West Ham's captain, admitted changes Moyes has made are yet to affect their league position, but believes the mood remains positive among the players.

"I'm not going to stand here and say it's been fantastic because, for me, football is not enjoyable unless you're winning games," Noble told Sky Sports News, speaking at a Christmas Party at the London Stadium for youngsters from the local Richard House Children's Hospice.

Moyes feels compassion for out-of-favour Joe Hart

  Moyes feels compassion for out-of-favour Joe Hart West Ham United manager David Moyes admits that he feels compassion for Joe Hart after the Englishman was dropped in the victory over Chelsea at the London Stadium, according to a report on The Guardian. Moyes opted to start Spaniard Adrian on Saturday and the decision paid off, with the shot-stopper having a very assured and confident game. Moyes reveals that the decision was a hard one but was ultimately made for the betterment of the club as a whole and the Scot is happy that the decision worked out well. Moyes: “I always have compassion for the players, and I have to think of their situation as well. That’s why it wasn’t an easy decision – it wasn’t easy because of that. But ultimately it’s West Ham I have to think about getting a result for. I need to win as well.” The Hammers currently sit in 18th place in the league table after the win over Chelsea and will host another London club on Wednesday night as they face Arsenal. Moyes will be asking his players to give a repeat performance against the Gunners and if they do then he will be confident of getting a result. Adrian is expected to start again in that fixture after Moyes was pleased with his impact against Chelsea. When asked if Adrian will start in midweek, Moyes said: “[He kept a] clean sheet, didn’t make any mistakes today, so I’d have to say on that I would think so.

I heard the words, “Fight for it”, “ work ” and “Tidy with your passes” not heard them for a while! Already an improvement. Was that Mark Noble running and passing forward. Moyes has changed things around already.

"I love to win. We're in a results business now where you have to win games and we haven't done that.

"What I will say is that it's been good under the new manager, he's set a stall out for how he wants to play. Some of the performances have been really good but the results haven't gone the way we wanted. You can slowly see it turning around. If you don't stick together you'll be in trouble.

"I've been in dressing rooms where the atmosphere has been much worse. We've got a good bunch of honest players that it hasn't gone for them this season. I can see the small changes in the things we're doing that hopefully, the results turn around."

West Ham conceded late on to suffered a narrow defeat to Premier League leaders Manchester City last weekend, and Noble has taken confidence that they can claim scalps in a tough run of fixtures, with champions Chelsea up next.

"We're going to have to pull a couple of bigguns out the hat," said Noble. "Chelsea are a fantastic team, I've watched a lot of them, they've got great players.

"But we played really well against Manchester City last weekend and if we play like that we'll have a chance."

Mark Noble is a patron for Richard House Children's Hospice, which cares for children with life limiting illnesses and their families. The Hospice is based in Beckton, east London - right at the heart of the West Ham United community and just around the corner from the club's Foundation.
