Noble insists West Ham would be delighted with Barcelona draw

West Ham United captain Mark Noble says the club would welcome drawing Barcelona in the next round of the Europa League.

The Hammers could draw one of the eight teams dropping down from the Champions League, including Barca and Borussia Dortmund, in the last-16 stage.

On possibly facing Barcelona in the knockout stages, Noble told BT Sport: "What a draw that would be for everyone.

"Just because Barcelona dropped out the Champions League doesn't mean they're a bad side.

"They have some incredible players. I'm excited to see who we get because the boys will be really looking forward to it."
