West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski was in good form against Aston Villa on Monday. The Polish international played his part as the Hammers kept their second consecutive clean sheet.
The 34-year-old was named the club’s player of the year last season, and he has continued to perform well this campaign. Fans on Twitter have been praising the shot-stopper’s performances:
We’re so lucky to have him. Superb goalkeeper.

He is outstanding of course. Most saves in Prem this season so far?
But does anyone else think that he should not have to work that hard and that if the defence was better he could relax, maybe chat to the supporters etc knowing that the ball will not come near him.

Fabianski was a commanding presence between the sticks at Villa Park. He had to make a very good save from John McGinn after the Scottish international’s shot was deflected.
He was also called into action when Wesley Moraes headed towards goal, and he was on hand to make an authoritative punch from a cross which Anwar El Ghazi was likely to get on the end of.
The £7m West Ham paid Swansea for Fabianski was certainly money well spent, and with the keeper having just 12 months left to run on his contract next summer, the club will likely be seeking an extension.
