Mark Noble felt sick after his penalty miss against Man United

West Ham United captain Mark Noble has opened up on his last week's penalty miss that cost his side against Manchester United.

The Hammers were trailing United heading to stoppage time but the hosts were handed a penalty in the closes stages with David Moyes bringing his captain from the bench for the spot-kick which was saved by David de Gea.

Noble however had sweet revenge when they eliminated United from the EFL Cup on Wednesday night with the Englishman opening up on how he felt after he failed to earn his side a point.

"The last couple of days have been tough but you put your boots back on and come out to play. You could call it two glorified B teams but I thought the players were fantastic.

"Things happen in football and sport. Sunday night at home I felt sick as a pig but you wake up in the morning and go to training to get ready for Wednesday. I have missed penalties in the past but because of the occasion, it was maybe so hyped. We came to Old Trafford, one of the greatest places in the world, and thoroughly enjoyed it.

"It gives a chance to players who don't play regularly and when you go get a chance you have to take it. All in all, a great night for West Ham and a fantastic night for myself. Victories at Manchester United don't come a lot."
