West Ham keeper Jaaskelainen shrugs off praise

West Ham United goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen has shrugged off the plaudits coming his way.

The former Bolton Wanderers No1 has been outstanding since his arrival.

But he told "For me it is always the same wherever you are. I try to work hard throughout the week to make sure I am ready for the game on Saturday. It helps that I have played in the Premier League before and I already know Sam (Allardyce) and his backroom staff.

"I really like the way they look after their players and hopefully I can repay them by keeping my performance levels at the same heights they have been so far this season. As a goalkeeper it is all about consistency."
