With West Ham’s season drawing to a close, manager Manuel Pellegrini will be able to start reflecting on his first season in charge.
The Hammers currently sit 11th in the Premier League and a mid-table finish will be slightly underwhelming, but there is some sort of platform to build on next year.
One of the major positives of the season has to be goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski, who has been the best value for money signing in recent times.
West Ham picked up the shot-stopper for just £7million (BBC) from Swansea City last summer and he’s arguably been the club’s best player at the London Stadium during his first campaign.
Fabianski, who earns £65,000-a-week (Spotrac), has played every minute in the league this term and bailed his team out of trouble on so many occasions.
The 34-year-old has brilliant reflexes that helps him make elite saves and he’s an experienced head too that Pellegrini can trust.
He has kept five clean sheets so far this campaign, but doesn’t have the most confident defence in front of him and is often called into action.
The Poland International really has fixed the goalkeeper position for the immediate future and £7million is an absolute steal.
