Genk's goalkeeper had perhaps enjoyed a quieter start to events than his West Ham counterpart with Alphonse Areola struggling to put together a convincing case for why he should be preferred to Lukasz Fabianski for Sunday's game against Tottenham.
He made some key tackles and interceptions and also tested the other goalkeeper quite a few times.
Against one of the most effective set-piece teams in Europe, they seemed to be operating in a zonal-marking system that did not require their defense to attack the ball.
The Hammers are living one of their best moments so far this season, for starters, they are coming from a victory against Manchester City in the round of 16 of the Carabao Cup, also, at the weekend they beat Aston Villa in the Premier League and in the Europa League they are undefeated and group leaders with 9 points.
I had my 999th game against Aston Villa and it was another one which will always stay in my memory and thankfully I won that one.
