Adrian picks out his favourite save at West Ham so far

West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian has selected his best save during his time at the London club so far.

West Ham United's goalkeeper Adrian says that his favourite save at the club so far came against Chelsea last season.

The Hammers managed to fend off Chelsea pressure to claim a 0-0 at Stamford Bridge during the 2013/14 campaign and they had Adrian to thank for preserving their point. 

In injury time it looked as if Frank Lampard was about to win the match for the Blues, as he ran onto a Eden Hazard cross and lashed the ball goalwards, but Adrian instinctively stuck out a leg to divert the ball clear of danger.

It was a fantastic stop, for which he was mobbed by his teammates after the match, and the Spaniard still has fond memories of it now. 

"I enjoyed this save so much," he said during a question and answer session

It was a brilliant piece of skill from the custodian, who is quickly establishing himself as a fine shot-stopper at the Boleyn Ground. 

Adrian took a while to adapt to English football, but he looks a safe pair of hands between the sticks for Sam Allardyce's men and is one of the first-names on the team-sheet.

His form has perhaps not received as much praise as it has deserved this year, due to their attacking prowess, but he has quietly got on with his designated task and helped the side climb into fourth in the Premier League table.

There is an optimism around the London club that has not been felt for some time and a European place now looks on the cards, if they maintain their current form. 

Adrian is likely to play a big role in helping them achieve this, and if they are to break into the top six come May he is likely to have an even more memorable save than his one against Chelsea to look back on.
