Lukasz Fabianski injury update after West Ham’s defeat to Man United

The Pole was forced into a premature departure from the action in Manchester


West Ham United boss David Moyes has, on Sunday evening, provided an update on the wellbeing of goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

Shot-stopper Fabianski, of course, set pulses racing across the Irons fanbase earlier today.

This came as Moyes and co. made the trip to Old Trafford for a Premier League meeting with in-form Manchester United.

En route to an eventual 1-0 defeat, Fabianski, amid an impressive individual campaign to date, was hauled off at the interval, with backup Alphonse Areola introduced in his place.

Speaking to the media on the back of the full-time whistle in Manchester, David Moyes, in turn, was asked for an update on his no.1′s wellbeing.

And, in encouraging news for the West Ham faithful, the club’s boss seemed largely unconcerned.

After admitting that, as things stand, he simply remains unaware of Fabianski’s status, the Scot went on to suggest that, in all likelihood, the former Arsenal star has suffered little more than ‘a jar of the knee’.

“I just know that he’s got a sore knee,” Moyes began. “He’s hurt his knee and we knew we weren’t going to take the chance at half-time.

“I don’t know [the severity], they just told me that his knee sort of went back and I think the footage shows it as far as I know. I think it was just a wee bit of a jar of the knee.”
