West Ham seem to have turned a corner in the past week after securing back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time under Manuel Pellegrini.
The Hammers performed superbly at the weekend to bring an end to Newcastle United’s recent winning streak, snatching all three points off the hosts, and followed that result by sweeping aside Cardiff City at the London Stadium.
A much sterner test was provided by the Welsh side on Tuesday, who had a glorious opportunity to open the scoring in the first half after they were awarded a penalty – but Joe Ralls was thwarted by Lukasz Fabianski.
Unfortunately for the former Swansea City and Arsenal man, he was stripped of another clean sheet by Josh Murphy’s consolation effort for the visitors but this did not stop supporters from heaping praise on a stopper they signed in the summer.
We have gathered some of their comments below.

Top keeper. I had doubts and thought Adrian should have had his chance but he fits like a glove.
