Javier Hernandez trains for West Ham United

Javier Hernandez trains for West Ham United

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

Out-of-favour defender David Luiz remains sidelined with a knee injury.

West Ham host Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday lunchtime with the Blues looking to close the gap on Manchester United. The last time they went nine without a victory, in 2011, they were relegated.

They defended far more stubbornly against Manchester City on Sunday (3 December), although could not prevent the free-scoring leaders from coming from behind to win 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium courtesy of goals from Nicolas Otamendi and David Silva that cancelled out Angelo Ogbonna's first-half header.

"If they get sucked into an old fashioned derby scrap it could be a different story".

Adrian has still yet to commit to a new contract at West Ham after the club took up their option for a two-year extension in May and previously suggested that he was open to leaving in January in order to improve his chances of selection for the 2018 World Cup.

What time is West Ham vs Chelsea kick-off?

"This is my fifth season at West Ham", he said.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Noble is adamant though that their results will match their improved performances eventually, but knows this needs to happen sooner rather than later.

The Hammers are deep in relegation trouble, sitting one point above bottom club Swansea and three points from safety going into this weekends home game against Chelsea. However, picking up one point in four games has done little to revive the fortunes of the London side.

Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace are reportedly fans of the keeper and could swoop if the player does not become content in East London.

Moyes won't want to bring his star striker back too soon, especially with the Christmas period on the horizon and a busy set of matches to come, but he may be forced to play him on Saturday.
