West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has been in excellent form since the start of the season.
The £7million summer signing from Swansea City put in another fine display against Crystal Palace in the 1-1 draw on Saturday afternoon.
Fans on Twitter have been quick to praise Fabianski for the 33-year-old’s consistency this campaign:
Signing of the season. Well done Fabianski.

One of the only players in the team who actually work for a wage

Poor Fab. This man should receive an extra payment for overtime work.

Despite the Polish international’s exploits, the Hammers stopper has only kept four clean sheets so far this season.
That’s certainly no slight on Fabianski, though, who has had to deal with a leaky backline that has the tendency to creak when under pressure.
It hasn’t helped that the centre-back partnership has had to be chopped and changed. Fabian Balbuena’s knee injury that he picked in December has meant Angelo Ogbonna has had to partner Issa Diop in the centre of defence.
The Paraguayan is expected to be back fit for the Hammers’ next game against Fulham on Friday week.
