Soccer – Experienced Zabaleta impresses Noble

West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble is looking forward to playing in the same side as Pablo Zabaleta this season. Noble, who has made a full recovery from abdominal surgery, struggled at times last term as the Hammers endured an inconsistent campaign. Slaven Bilic's team are 11/8 with bet365 to secure a top-half finish in 2017/18. The Hammers snapped up Zabaleta from Manchester City earlier this summer, and Noble said of the Argentinian: "Pablo has come straight in and it's been like he's been here a long time. "He's been at one of the biggest clubs in the world and won the Premier League and other trophies, so we know he's a very good player. He's a great addition to the team and brings a lot of experience." West Ham can be backed at 10/1 to beat Manchester United on the opening weekend of the Premier League campaign.
