West Ham United star Adrian 'ready' for Everton showdown

West Ham

West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian has taken to social networking site Twitter ahead of the side's match against Everton this weekend.

West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian says that he is prepared to face Everton this weekend. 

The Spanish shot-stopper took to social networking site Twitter earlier today to announce to supporters that he is 'ready' to face the Toffees.

 

In the match he will be looking to keep a potent Everton front-line at bay and increase his standing with the Hammers fans as a result of doing so.

West Ham have received much plaudits for their attacking football, but Adrian's form has not gone unnoticed by supporters at the Boleyn Ground.

The 27-year-old is rapidly becoming a fan favourite with the London club because of his consistent excellence between the sticks. 

Adrian has caught the eye with his shot-stopping ability and command of his area since his move to the Hammers last summer. 

He is now one of the first names on the teamsheet, and if West Ham are to continue to challenge for a European spot they will need him at the top of his game. 

Sam Allardyce's men are currently in the top four of the Premier League, but the match at Goodison Park is sure to challenge them.

Everton are one of the best teams in England and have a host of attacking options available to them.

It means that Adrian's display is likely to be crucial for them, if they are to get any sort of result from Merseyside.

So far this season, the custodian has made 38 saves in 11 matches, and this total is likely to increase by five o'clock tomorrow afternoon.

With the likes of Samuel Eto'o and Romelu Lukaku available for Roberto Martinez's side, it could be a tough ask for Adrian to keep a clean sheet, but he appears confident after their final preparations today.
