West Ham captain, Mark Noble insists Joe Hart should not be blamed for the club’s poor start to the season.
The Hammers signed Joe Hart from Manchester City on a season-long loan, but could not get a buyout clause.
West Ham are yet to win a game in three matches, conceding 10 goals and only managing to score two goals.
However, Noble insists Hart should not be blamed and has backed the England international to deliver.
“Joe has had a tough start to his West Ham career, but that’s down to the whole team,” the West Ham captain told the Daily Mail.
“He’s England’s No.1, he’s a fantastic goalie and I think he’ll stay No.1 for a while yet to come.
“He’s a fantastic character. He’s played in massive tournaments and won the Premier League so it’s always nice to have that experience.
“We probably haven’t protected him as well as we should have done in the first three games, but he’s a leader, a great person and hopefully he can start his enjoyment of West Ham from next Monday night.”
