In recent comments made on Patreon, ExWHUemployee provided an update on the fitness of West Ham United goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski ahead of the Hammers’ Premier League fixture against Leeds United.
So far this season, Fabianski has been in fine form for David Moyes’ side, with the 35-year-old conceding just 29 goals and keeping eight clean sheets over his 24 Premier League appearances, averaging a SofaScore match rating of 6.85 for his efforts.
However, after having his arm stood upon in training, the Poland international was ruled out of the Hammers’ 2-1 loss to Manchester City last Saturday; but in recent comments made on Patreon, ExWHUemployee revealed that the shot-stopper is ‘expected’ to be back for the club’s fixture with Leeds next week.
He said: “First team keeper Fabianski is expected to be available for the game against Leeds next Monday.”
Do you think Fabianski will be back for Leeds?
Transfer Tavern Take
Should Fabianski indeed be deemed fit enough to feature against Marcelo Bielsa’s side next Monday, it will undoubtedly be a boost for David Moyes, as the Irons’ second choice ‘keeper Darren Randolph also suffered an injury scare during the City fixture – although Randolph himself stated that he was “fine” after the match.
However, considering that Leeds have scored an impressive 43 goals in the Premier League so far this season, one would assume that if his first-choice ‘keeper is given the all-clear, Moyes will not hesitate in awarding Fabianski an immediate return to the first team.
