West Ham were impressive as they beat Cyrstal Palace 3-2 at Selhurst Park. Despite conceding two goals, the Hammers were by far the better team and could have won by more if they had been more clinical. The result meant that the club climbed into the top four.
The Eagles did manage two goals from their few created chances, but West Ham stopper Lukasz Fabianski was at hs best for the other chances. The Polish keeper preserved the Hammers lead on a couple of occasions as he showed he was back to his very best.
There were question marks over the keeper last season after he came back from injury, but this term Fabianski has returned to his best form. After the game against Crystal Palace, the 35-year-old is pleased with the team’s current form but insisted they are only thinking of the next match.
"“We have set our standards really high and we don’t want to let it drop. We want to continue to push and give our best and take each game as it comes an see what happens”Lukasz Fabianski on West Ham’s good form."
Lukasz Fabianksi is happy with the standards West Ham are setting in their performances but insists they are only thinking of the next game.
The Hammers are basking in their best form in recent memory. The club have won their previous six matches and are unbeaten in eight games in all competitions. The run of form has transformed the club’s season, and now they are challenging at the top of the table. The Hammers are only six points off the summit of the Premier League.
This season has defied the odds so far. Before the campaign, many believed that West Ham would struggle and possibly be in another relegation battle. David Moyes however, has turned the team around and changed the whole mentality on and off the pitch. Something that can be sensed in Fabianski’s words.
If the Hammers want to make a real statement to the Premier League then winning seven in a row would do exactly that. Especially as their next game is against the current Champions, Liverpool.
