Noble Out Until 2011
The BBC report that Mark Noble will be out of action until the new year. Noble suffered a hip injury during the Liverpool game. The BBC say that it is unclear exactly how long Noble will be out for, although it is hoped he will be back playing in early January.
ESPN are reporting that Cole will be dropped for the Wigan game as punishment for criticising Avram Grant's tactics against Liverpool. ESPN claim that Grant called a players' meeting and told his squad that he will not tolerate public rebukes from West Ham players.
