West Ham assistant boss Neil McDonald laments his side’s current injury problems following a disappointing derby defeat at the Emirates on Saturday and confirms even his goalkeeper – Adrian – dislocated his finger during the warm-up but the Spaniard insisted he played the game.
Adrian was sent off during the Hammer's 0-0 draw against Southampton in mid-week for illegally handling the ball outside of the box but has appealed the decision and won.
West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian was sent off in the Hammers' 0-0 draw against Southampton.
Adrian made the most of a match in which he was constantly under fire by Chelsea's attack, making several saves, but the volume was too much to handle as the Blues would beat him twice and the Hammers would leave Stamford Bridge empty-handed in a 2-0 loss.
Adrian has been good since taking over from Jussi Jaaskelainen but not today as he was caught out of his net in the 8th minute by Wayne Rooney in a 2-0 loss to Manchester United.
West Ham goalkeeper Adrian has been in fantastic form as West Ham have won three in a row.
Chelsea slipped up in the race for the title as they were held to a 0-0 draw by a dogged West Ham at Stamford Bridge.
West Ham chose to go with Adrian instead of Jussi Jaaskalainen at goal against Cardiff and the Spanish keeper rewarded them with a clean sheet.
