Mark Noble has been given a week off after it was confirmed that he would miss this weekend's clash with Leicester.

The Hammers captain was reported to have picked up an injury ahead of Saturday's meeting and has been granted a few days' leave by manager Slaven Bilic in order to recharge his batteries, according to The Mail.




"He is not available for Saturday and after that we have an international break," said Bilic on Thursday. "I left it up to him and his decision was to go somewhere for a week and come back stronger.

"He is the captain and is doing everything for the club. He is exactly what a captain should be, but sometimes it is too much. Sometimes he takes it home and thinks about that - not only about him but about the club."

Noble, who has received criticism by some fans on social media this week is expected to take a brief holiday during his spell on the sidelines.
