The 30-year-old has become somewhat of a cult figure at the London Stadium since joining the Hammers on loan in October.

Dawson has actually been one of our main goalscoring threats over the past few months.

His uncanny knack of scoring from corners really is impressive. He attacks the ball with real vigour and aggression.

The Watford owned centre-back has defended admirably for West Ham since making his debut for the club back in December.

His goals have been an added bonus.

Gary Lineker posts Craig Dawson tweet

He scored again last night but unfortunately for Dawson, it was in the wrong net.

And Gary Lineker took to Twitter, jokingly pointing out that Craig Dawson scored yet another winning goal:

Hopefully we’ll be back at our best against Arsenal next weekend.

Dawson has been pivotal to our fine form since the turn of the year. And if he continues his fine form defensively, whilst chipping in with a few more goals, West Ham will have every chance of finishing inside the top six this season.
