West Ham's Mark Noble is obviously no fan of time-wasters.

Noble's side were trailing Manchester United 2-0 late in today's FA Cup quarter-final clash, when United midfielder Ander Herrera fell to the ground injured.

Not convinced that Herrera was seriously injured, Noble took it to himself to get the Spaniard off the field as quick as possible so the game could continue. The West Ham skipper lifted Herrera in his arms and carried him to the sideline, to the displeasure of Herrera and the Manchester United doctor.

West Ham did manage to score a goal minutes later but Nobel's super-strength wasn't enough to stop United advancing to the FA Cup semifinals where they will face Everton.
