Mark Noble has admitted that it will be "tough" for West Ham United to stay in the Premier League this season.

The Hammers are just six points above the relegation zone with eight games left to play following Saturday's 2-0 defeat at home to Manchester United.

West Ham continue their campaign on Wednesday when Hull City visit Upton Park.

"I think you'd agree with me that this is one of the freakiest seasons you've ever seen and the tightest," Noble told the club's official website.

"It is going to be tough. We've still got eight games left and we've got to put some points on the board.

"Obviously it a big game on Wednesday. Hull beat West Brom on Saturday so they are going to have confidence, but we need to play like we can do at home."

West Ham have lost their last three matches in the Premier League.
