Pellegrini Provides Update After Key West Ham Star Is Taken Off Injured Against Bournemouth

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini has said that the seriousness of Lukasz Fabianski will be assessed today after he had to be substituted in the 2-2 draw against Bournemouth.

The goalkeeper had to be taken off before half time and after the match, Pellegrini revealed that the Polish international suffered a hip injury:

“Lukasz felt a problem in a muscle in his hip when he tried to kick the ball,” he confirmed. “We need to know more about it with a medical examination on Sunday.”



“Goalkeeper is an important player, but I trust a lot in Roberto also. Roberto played well, he’s a very good goalkeeper and we will see what will happen with Lukasz’s injury and how many weeks he will be out.”

Fabianski has not missed a league match since arriving from Swansea in 2018, but it seems that the 34-year-old could now face a spell on the sidelines.

Before the game, Pellegrini had been singing the praises of the shot-stopper, but it appears he will have to rely on the club’s number two for the time being.

Roberto has conceded five goals in three appearances since arriving on a free transfer in the summer. His save percentage is 70.6% so far this campaign, which is below that of Fabianski, but fans will be hoping he can step up to the mark if the club’s number one is sidelined for a while.
