Mark Noble insists West Ham United are feeling confident ahead of their first non-qualifying European match since 2006.

The Hammers travel to Croatia to face Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday

"The level we play at now, not just in the Premier League or Europa League but in the cups, if you're not at a level, you get beat," Noble said.

"It showed last year. I think apart from the top two or three teams, we've had the best goals scored and points picked up, especially last season.

"I think coming into European competition, we're ready. Will be tough? Yes. Dinamo have got a really good team, really good players. Obviously we saw the result they had last season against Spurs. It was impressive to beat them 3-0 but we come here unbeaten in the Premier League at the minute, eight points picked up.

"At the moment, I'll say we're not used to being in the Europa. But we are used to winning in the last year. We're used to having that winning feeling. And it's not something we want to give up just because we're playing in Europe."
