Why Lukasz Fabianski has been West Ham’s most influential player this term

West Ham United have experienced a roller coaster season during Manuel Pellegrini’s first campaign at the helm.

The Hammers are currently sitting ninth in the Premier League table having acquired 42 points from 31 games.

Pellegrini will be hoping his side can push up the table as high possible, after struggling in the early stages of the season.

The Irons lost their first four and the pressure mounted on the Chilean, but the ship has been steadied and the storm seemingly weathered – and one man has had a major influence on that being achieved.

TBR’s view

West Ham’s £7m deal to sign Lukasz Fabianski last summer (BBC Sport) was kind of slept on by fans.

 

The Polish stopper has been an outstanding signing for the club, although he doesn’t have too many clean sheets to show for his efforts

Fabianski isn’t part of the new breed of goalkeeper that can play with their feet, but he is a great shot stopper and has a good command of his area.

With him between the sticks there is no panic and rarely are mistakes leading directly to goals made.

He is just a solid goalkeeper who does his job consistently week in, week out. With West Ham’s tendency to concede chances, his influence in keeping the team in contests is huge.
