Noble ‘unusual’ injury explained

NobleSam Allardyce has explained the ‘mystery injury’ that will keep Mark Noble out of the clash with Queens park Rangers.

“But there is obviously a deeper, underlying problem with Mark’s calf, it looks as if it has torn one or two fibres in there.

“He played after the kick and then played again after a second kick but we will have to see how it goes.”
