West Ham were reduced to ten men in the first half of their 1-1 draw at Leicester City on Saturday after Mark Noble lunged at Wilfred Ndidi.
The Hammers captain was forced to pass the armband to teammate Pablo Zabaleta in the 38th minute with his side one goal to the good at the King Power Stadium after catching the midfielder above the ankle with his studs showing.
The sending off left the visiting fans frustrated as West Ham conceded a late equaliser and was labelled “ludicrous” by former player John Hartson.
These were the best jokes as Mark Noble is sent off at Leicester:

Credit to Mark Noble. Complaining about this red card takes massive testicles. How do those things fit in his little shorts?? pic.twitter.com/XO6mGEOVTb

More anti spurs bias from a referee. Ensuring Mark Noble will miss the game vs Tottenham.
