"I thought the team's performance in the first half, the way we kept the ball, the way we passed it allowed us to cause them problems," Noble told Sky Sports News.
"The second half was going to a fight and a battle and obviously them having a man sent off made it that little bit easier in the end.
"If it wasn't for a lack of finishing on our behalf we could've won it by a couple more. We controlled the game."
Sam Allardyce's side are now unbeaten in five league matches and could go as high as second with a victory in their next match against Arsenal this weekend.
