David Moyes defends Mark Noble despite missing the late penalty against Manchester United.

West Ham

was defeated by the

Red Devils

in a day that they had the chance to change everything with

Mark Noble’s

late penalty, which was missed by the player, who was experiencing his first touch in the game when he was handed the ball to shoot from the penalty spot.

David Moyes

has talked about his decision of sending Noble in to shoot the penalty, insisting that the decision was the right one considering the player’s record in taking penalties.

"I chose Noble to come off the bench and take the penalty kick because I know how good his penalty record is,"

Moyes told West Ham TV


"Mark was brave enough, he wanted it, and so from that point of view there's no responsibility with him at all."

Manchester United fought so much to earn the three points, and they reached their goal by

Jesse Lingard’s

game-winner in the 89th minute to complete their comeback from one goal down against the club that gave him a chance to save his career in his loan spell and David Moyes has talked about him insisting that they all respect him despite his goal.

"Jesse got a second chance to bounce back as a player when he was at West Ham last year. We'll always be grateful for what he did for us,"

said Moyes.

"I wish he hadn't scored, but we had a chance to get a draw out of it and we missed our chance."
