West Ham skipper Mark Noble absolutely raved about his teammate Lukasz Fabianski, when writing his regular column for the Evening Standard.

The Polish stopper has been quite simply brilliant for the Hammers since moving to east London from Swansea City in the summer of 2018 for around £7 million.

Fabianski, 34, oozes composure and authority. And he has undoubtedly helped West Ham improve upon the solidarity of their defensive play.

The former Arsenal and Swansea City goalkeeper, who earns £65,000 per week according to Spotrac, made more saves than another other stopper in the Premier League last season, and he is regarded as one of the best in the top flight.

Noble absolutely raved about Fabianski.

He suggested that he’s the best goalkeeper he has ever played alongside, when writing his regular column for the Evening Standard:

“It’s the manner of how we are playing which is most satisfying to me. The only negative was the injury to our goalkeeper, Lukasz Fabianski. For me, he’s the best keeper I have played with and brings a level of calmness which I had never seen before. Lukasz never shouts, he directs his back four, but he’s not one of those who makes a save, then jumps up and starts screaming at everyone: ‘Look at me!’.”

 

Massive miss for West Ham

Unfortunately for West Ham, the 34-year-old has been ruled out for around 3 months through injury.

He is arguably the Hammers’ most important player. And having him unavailable for selection for so long could really dent their top six hopes.

West Ham will now have to rely upon either Roberto or David Martin to produce the goods between the sticks.

And Hammers fans will be praying that Fabianski returns to action sooner rather than later.
