Fabianski: We’re starting to click as a team

Lukasz Fabianski says the Hammers’ hard work on the training pitch is now bearing fruit on the big stage.

After making nine summer signings, West Ham had to wait until the fifth game of the Premier League season to pick up their first point, but with seven to their name from the last three outings, goalkeeper Fabianski is convinced the gelling process is well underway.

Wins against Manchester United and Everton, with a draw against Chelsea in the middle, have lifted the Hammers up the early league table, with Poland international Fabianski ready to help secure more positive results in the weeks ahead.

“We knew after the performances against Chelsea and Everton that the team was starting to click,” he said.

“If we played with the intensity that we have shown in recent games, we knew that we would have a chance to get something out of the game against Manchester United and everyone can be really happy with what we showed on Saturday.

“The result, the three points and the performance were all really good. It’s a good step forward.

“We’ve been on an unbeaten run for four games after losing the first four. I just hope we continue to grow as a team and as a group. What we got from the last week is the belief we can compete against the top teams in the league.

“We have to continue to keep focused and work hard and get as much as we can from every single game."
