Mark Noble yellow carded on 400th appearance, to miss Sunderland & Everton games

Mark Noble marked his 400th appearance for West Ham with a yellow card that will see him miss the club’s next two games against Sunderland (away) and Everton (home). Noble’s 39th minute foul on Swansea City’s Leroy Fer (a rather unnecessary one at that) saw him collect his 10th yellow of the season, which according to the current rules, earns him a two match ban.

The more frustrating fact- the league’s yellow card “amnesty” kicks in on the second Sunday of April (April 9, 2017 for this season), and if Noble had got through this game without being booked, he would’ve avoided the ban.

Noble’s foul came just seconds after Michail Antonio injured his hamstring, leading to the latter being stretchered off and replaced by Jonathan Calleri
