A number of eyebrows were raised when David Moyes announced his team for Norwich Cty yesterday.
In dropping Yarmolneko to the bench and bringing back the captain in Mark Noble supporters thought the team was too defensive for one of the worst teams in the Premier League and that Noble himself is now too slow.
Noble was to repay his faith in his manager by having a great game and contributing to the goals.
The 33-year-old set up two of the four goals yesterday. The skipper also made 54 passes with an impressive completion rate of 89%, and won two tackles and five individual duals
It seemed as though the midfielder was deployed slightly further forward in a more attacking role against Norwich.
