West Ham midfielder Mark Noble has moved to calm his on-field spat with Manchester United star Paul Pogba, insisting “what occurs on the pitch stays on the pitch”.

The duo have been concerned in a skirmish in the direction of the tip of Thursday’s dour goalless draw at London Stadium.

Pogba caught Noble with a late problem and the Hammers captain reacted angrily, barging into the France worldwide and grabbing his face.

The pair appeared to make up on the full-time whistle and Noble is able to transfer on from the incident.

“What occurs on the pitch stays on the pitch,” Noble wrote on Twitter in a message to Pogba on Friday.

Hammers boss David Moyes and Pink Devils counterpart Jose Mourinho each sought to minimize the conflict of their post-match information conferences.

“I used to be watching photos [of the incident] and Paul and Noble appeared in love,” stated the Portuguese. “Hugs and kisses on the finish in order that was good.”

Moyes added: “I’ve bought to say I did not make a lot of it.”
