Adrian eyes faster starts

West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian admits his side need to start better at home after being forced to twice come from behind to claim a draw against Norwich City.

In three of their four home fixtures this season the Hammers have conceded the first goal - going some way to explain their return of four points from those matches.

The stopper was impressed once again with the character shown but says the Hammers need to stop making life hard for themselves.

"Away we are playing very well but sometimes here at home we need to start much better" he said. "We allow the other team to have more confidence and they can score.

"For us, at the moment we are playing better away from home but you have your fans here and of course if you play well, the fans are with you.

"We need a result or to score first to have our fans with us."

Adrian was once again in fine form against the Canaries, at one point even using his face to block from Cameron Jerome, and he explained afterwards that any save is a good one, no matter what part of the body makes it!

"It was a good face save," he laughed.

"It was a great strike and I did not have time to put my hands up to save it so I used my face."
