November was a brilliant period for West Ham United.
The London club had a pretty tricky run of fixtures to contend with at the very start of the season, but last month ended up taking nine points from a possible nine.
They beat Fulham, Sheffield United, and most recently Aston Villa to climb to fifth in the Premier League table, leaving fans delighted if not a little surprised.
There have been a number of standout individual performers for the Irons, and three of their stars have been given their due credit with a place in the latest Team of the Month from respected statistics website WhoScored.
Goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is in, as is defender Aaron Cresswell and striker Sebastien Haller.

Fabianski made 13 saves across the team’s three November fixtures, earning himself a 7.54. rating.
£50,000-a-week star Cresswell (Spotrac) was included for making five key passes and eight accurate crosses, despite operating as a left-sided centre half. His rating was 7.16.
And Haller, in the side as a replacement for the injured Michail Antonio, earned a rating of 7.63.
TBR’s View – West Ham must keep pushing
November couldn’t have gone much better for the Hammers, who were the only Premier League side to win all their games.
They were perhaps a little fortuitous against Aston Villa, but the David Moyes’ side should take great heart from their recent run.
Now up to fifth, they must build on their progress if they are to finish in the top 10 at least in 2020/21.
