West Ham teammates hail Jaaskelainen impact
The Finn played his part in making sure a point at least was going back to east London.
Collins told whufc.com: "I felt as a team we gave a strong performance - we stood firm to them and the basis of our performances has been in trying to keep clean sheets.
"Jussi made some great saves. He is right up there with the best keepers I have played with, he talks well on the pitch and in the dressing room. He has played in the Premier League for longer than I can remember now.
"His experience meant that for some of the shots, he already knew which way they were going to go and that is great for helping us boys in front of him."
