West Ham endured a tough start under the guidance of Manuel Pellegrini but December has been the perfect month for the Hammers so far.
Back-to-back victories over Newcastle United, Cardiff, City, Crystal Palace and Fulham, with the most recent triumph being a 2-0 win at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
Goals from Robert Snodgrass and Michail Antonio fired the Hammers to all three points but a number of defensive players were also praised for their performance, with goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski earning praise for another clean sheet.
The Poland international made a number of solid saves when the scoreline was still level and, having arrived from Swansea City in the summer, some fans are heralding the experienced stopper as one of the best signings in the club’s history.
Plenty of fans took to social media to heap praise on their number one after he took to Twitter after the match. We have gathered some of the comments below.
