Mark Noble was not allowed to celebrate his 34th birthday in peace as West Ham prepare for their clash with Everton.

Next season will be Hammers legend Noble's last in east London, and he will hope to end his career by playing Champions League football.

West Ham are in a battle for the top four, and there is clearly a jubilant mood around David Moyes' squad.

Jesse Lingard, on loan from Manchester United, shared footage of exactly how West Ham stars helped Noble celebrate.

And there was no fancy bottles of Champagne or luxurious gifts - Noble was instead given the essentials.

Eggs and flour were pelted at the birthday boy, who was working up a sweat on the rowing machine at West Ham's training ground.

He was hit straight in the face with an egg, falling off the rower, before being covered in flour.

Hammers players can be heard roaring with laughter with Noble taking it all in good spirits as he leaps to his feet and begins dancing.

Lingard is joined on the other side of the camera by the likes of Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek as the West Ham boys join in with the dancing.

Attentions will turn to Everton on Sunday, with Moyes saying: "I have great respect for Carlo Ancelotti and great respect for Everton so that all makes it a big day.

"We’re both fighting for Europe and I hope West Ham can make it, so we’ve got to keep playing well and give ourselves that chance.

"You’ll see two sides who know the importance of winning the game. They’ll realise if they beat us they have a chance of getting above us and we know we can put some distances into them, but we’re also looking above us and looking to catch those teams.

"I don’t see any easy games in the Premier League. They’re so hard to call, you can turn up and be off colour a bit and not get the performance you want.

"We had a sending off at Newcastle, it’s the small things that can do that, but in the same breath we’re confident and playing well.

"To have a chance of getting in the top four we’ll have to win all four games and that’s our mindset."
