Sam Allardyce’s men have kept three clean sheets in their past four matches to give themselves a real hope of staying up and Kaboul says a lot of that can go down to the Ivorian Kone.

He told the Echo: “Lamine looks like heÂ’s always been around. HeÂ’s a machine, heÂ’s definitely a machine, but heÂ’s very calm also.”

After the clean sheet against Arsenal on Sunday, Kaboul is looking to repeat the trick in the vital clash with Stoke on Saturday.

He added: “You can see defence and the midfield is working very hard, but the entire team works very hard, and now we have to go to Stoke and get a result there.

“We will go there to try and win the game.”
