West Ham’s Fab Fabianski saves the day


Lukasz Fabianski more than made up for his error against Newcastle qwith a top class show against Fulham.

One save in particular was world class as got a fingertip to the ball as Andreas Pereira simply had to tap home in a one on one for the equaliser.

But our Polish keeper – whilst sprawled on the ground pushed the ball away with a goal looking certain.

Beyond that he was the safest pair of hands possible and has even quickened up his distribution for which he has been criticised in the past.

In a match where small margins decided West Ham United’s 1-0 win over Fulham, it was that stop which got his side over the line.

And afterwards he told www.whufc.com “The win brings us closer [to safety. We didn’t get so many points this season away from home so far, so it is very important to get as many as you can.

“We played against a really good team today who are having a really good season, so it’s a big boost for us and hopefully with the remaining games we will be able to finish in a strong way.

“Obviously we’re very happy and very glad about three points that put us in a better position in the table I believe. Hopefully, we will be able to finish off the season in a strong way, we’re very happy and it’s a very important three points.”

And after a disappointing result against Newcastle United in midweek, Fabiański knew the importance of bouncing back. He was delighted the Hammers did just that. And equally pleased with his own showing.

“We’re very happy,” he stated. “It was only about responding from what happened on Wednesday evening against Newcastle.

“It was a bit of a freak of a game for us and we wanted to bounce back and show we are much better than we showed on Wednesday.  It’s nice to be back quickly out there on the pitch and prove what happened on Wednesday night was more of an accident than what represents us.

“I must admit it was very challenging for me personally because obviously, I did not have a good game against Newcastle. It was challenging but at the same time, I believe it was good that this game came so quickly in the space of three days.”

We as a group knew something would change and the manager decided to make changes, but like I said the squad is big, the squad is strong, and everybody does their best to help the team and that’s what we did today.
