West Ham fans react on Twitter to Adrian's display against Arsenal

Upton Park

West Ham fans were full of praise for goalkeeperAdrian after his performance against Arsenal.

After losing 2-0 to Chelsea on Boxing Day, West Ham needed a response when they played another London rival, with Arsenal their opponents this time.

West Ham had the better of the early stages, but Santi Cazorla converted a penalty just four minutes before half time to give Arsenal the lead.

Just three minutes later, Danny Welbeck tapped home from close range as Arsenal took control of the game on the stroke of half time.

A header from Cheikhou Kouyate brought West Ham back into the game, but they couldn't find the equaliser, meaning they have now lost two games in a row.

The star of the show for the Hammers was goalkeeper Adrian, who kept Arsenal at bay superbly in the second half as West Ham were caught on the break by Welbeck and Alexis Sanchez on a number of occasions.

The Spaniard has been praised in recent weeks after some superb displays for West Ham, with manager Sam Allardyce saying he's even as good as his compatriot David De Gea of Manchester United.

After today's performance, West Ham fans were full of praise for Adrian - with some once again comparing him to De Gea.
