If the numbers from the 2017/18 Premier League season are considered, it seems West Ham United fans will enjoy the form of new signing Lukasz Fabianski. 

The Poland international completed a transfer to the Irons from Swansea City last week, signing a three-year deal with the Hammers. 

In a piece for premierleague.com's Fantasy Premier League Scout, the numbers indicate that Fabianski will play a crucial role for the Irons in the new season.

Fabianski made 150 appearances across all competitions in his four years in South Wales, with the 33-year-old playing every Premier League game last season. 

In those 38 matches, Fabianski made an incredible 137 saves, a total only bettered by one other goalkeeper in the league - Stoke City's Jack Butland.

In total, Fabianski kept 39 clean-sheets for Swansea during his four seasons at the Liberty Stadium. 

It's a strong return for a shot-stopper who has faced 532 shots since the start of the 2015/16 season - an average of 4.75 a game. 

The Pole saved 363 of those 532 shots and headers for a save percentage of 68.23 per cent.

Fantasy Football fans will consider Fabianski a strong option for their 2018/19 team.  The goalkeeper, valued at £4.5m at the start of last campaign, ended the season the top-ranked player for Fantasy Premier League value, with 33.4 points per million (ppm).

He was also the third top-scoring goalkeeper with 157 points and his 35 points from saves almost equalled nine extra clean sheets in terms of points earned.
