Lukasz Fabianski has been West Ham's signing of the summer so far

After four losses in four Premier League matches, there is plenty of doom and gloom at West Ham United at the moment.

West Ham made a host of summer signings and they are taking a while to gel, meaning the Hammers have no points on the board ahead of the international break.

Some new players have struggled this season, but one man has been the standout signing of the summer.

Lukasz Fabianski has turned in several decent performances for the Irons.

Early season form

After joining from Swansea City in a £7m deal, there was some doubt over whether he was the long-term goalkeeper solution.

But the Poland international has pulled off a string of fine saves. The results could have been a lot worse without him between the sticks.

The 33-year-old has kept Adrian out of the team and his Premier League experience has equipped him well for life at West Ham.

With everyone else struggling around him, Fabianski has been a rare shining light in this team, although he is yet to help West Ham earn a point.

The clean sheets will come

While at Swansea, Fabianski was involved in many relegation battles, proving he has the ability to cope with a lot of pressure coming his way.

In four Premier League matches, the veteran stopper has already made 21 saves. That is more than five stops per game.

Against lesser opposition or when West Ham can shore up the back-line, Fabianski will start keeping clean sheets.

Time for the others to step up

Fabianski should not be the man highlighted as the signing of the summer. After conceding 10 goals in four games, the defence need to help him out.

Attacking midfielders Felipe Anderson and Andriy Yarmolenko also need to improve their end product and consistency.

By the end of the season, Fabianski should not be the signing of the summer.
