West Ham: Fans concerned about Roberto Jimenez after Lukasz Fabianski injury

Many West Ham fans have voiced their concerns after the news that key player Lukasz Fabianski will be forced to miss at least two months with a torn hip muscle.

Is this West Ham's best side of the Premier League era?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The Polish ‘keeper, 34, got the injury while taking a goal-kick in his side’s 2-2 draw against Bournemouth on Saturday, and was duly subbed off.

According to The Guardian, there were hopes from West Ham that he had merely strained a muscle after he limped off at the Vitality Stadium, but further examination has shown that Fabianski will be sitting out a large chunk of the season – with reports suggesting it could be even longer than three months.

It’s a big blow for the Hammers considering the ‘keeper was the club’s Player of the Season last year.

Replacing Fabianski is likely to be Roberto Jimenez – a Spanish goalkeeper brought to the club in the summer after a three-year spell at Espanyol.

Unfortunately for Jimenez, it seems he is yet to convince the fans yet, playing twice in the EFL Cup and conceding four goals.

Here are some of the responses to the news of Fabianski’s impending absence…
