West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble feels they need to start playing with a striker again.

West Ham were already trailing Chelsea 2-0 when Allardyce brought on striker Modibo Maiga and Mohamed Diame before half-time, taking off a disgruntled Joe Cole and Jack Collison.

"It's up to gaffer what he does," said Noble, "but in the second half we had more of a focal point and it looked a bit more balanced. It seemed to work a bit better but Chelsea were 2-0 up by then and probably took their foot off the gas a little.

"I just can't believe the way it's going at the minute. We were holding Chelsea OK and then we give away another unbelievable goal."
