Woods delighted with first day clean sheet

West Ham United goalkeeper coach Chris Woods says Sunday's game at Arsenal could not have gone any better for his charge Adrian.

The Spanish stopper made saves from Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez en route to a clean sheet and a 2-0 victory - the perfect start both individually and for the team.

Woods was impressed with his performance and says that is just reward for his hard work over the summer.

He said: "As a goalkeeper coach you can't ask for a better start than that. Obviously a clean sheet and one or two saves to go with it.

"Adrian has been different class to work with. He's full of energy, eager to do well and ke knows what he wants out of the game. It's been good getting to know him and hopefully we get to know how each other works and form a good relationship.

"Good goalkeeping is all about doing the right things at the right times and then making those important saves when you need to. He came and caught a couple of crosses too, which takes pressure off the back four.

"I'm so pleased for him that he kept a clean sheet."
