West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski is facing two to three months on the sidelines after tearing a hip muscle against Bournemouth, according to multiple reports.
The 34-year-old had to be replaced midway through the first half of the 2-2 draw on Saturday. Supporters are very disappointed that the Hammers’ number one will be out for so long:
That’s our season ruined

FFS…..first Antonio then Fabianski….why can’t we ever catch a break and not have long term injuries to our major players every season…so annoying!

Of course it had to be our best and most influential player!..🤷♂️🙄

Fabianski has arguably been the club’s best player since he arrived from Swansea at the start of last season, and there will be concerns about his replacement Roberto.
The Spaniard hasn’t looked completely convincing since he joined on a free transfer but fans will be hoping that he can provide adequate cover between the posts.
Reports suggest that Fabianski will be out for at least two months so the game against Chelsea on the 30th November, as well as the match versus Wolves on 3rd December, could be two possible return dates for the shot-stopper.
