Ben Foster reacts on Twitter to Boaz Myhill's performance v West Ham

West Brom

The West Brom goalkeeper heaped praise on the man replacing him while he is out injured.

Injured West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster took to Twitter to praise Rickie Lambert and also Boaz Myhill for their performances against West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.

West Brom left Upton Park with a 1-1 draw - a result that will very much satisfy Tony Pulis based on how the 90 minutes unfolded.

And Foster praised Lambert, as well as goalkeeper Myhill, with the 33-year-old responsible for several key saves against West Ham.

The stats prove how busy Myhill was against the Hammers...

 This weekend SavesMinutes Played
Willy Caballero 6 90
Tim Howard 6 90
Boaz Myhill 5 90
Maarten Stekelenburg 5 90

As Opta data shows, only two goalkeepers made more saves than Myhill in the Premier League this weekend but what separates the West Brom shot stopper from the rest of the bunch is that he was only beaten by a simply unstoppable West Ham free-kick.

Foster will no doubt face a tough battle for his place when he returns from injury, with the Baggies having Myhill to thank for their point at Upton Park.

There were certainly other contributors, while West Ham should have done better at home. But the West Brom goalkeeper played a huge part.
