David Moyes has suggested that Lukasz Fabianski faces a race against time to be fit for West Ham United’s clash with Southampton on Sunday.
The 36-year-old pulled up with a slight knee concern during the warm-up before our game against West Brom on Wednesday night.
Darren Randolph filled in for the Pole admirably.
Losing Fab for our final game of the season will still be a big blow for West Ham, however.
David Moyes provides update on Lukasz Fabianski
The former Swansea City and Arsenal stopper’s recent injury problems will be a real concern for the Hammers.
It is an issue that we absolutely have to address in the summer.
For now though, the West Ham fans will be hoping that the 36-year-old is fit to face Southampton on Sunday.
Moyes spoke to reporters today and provided an update on Fabianski ahead of the Saints clash, as quoted by Football.London:
“Don’t know about Fabiabski, don’t think it is quite as bad as I did at the time but it will be a last minute call on Sunday.”
A draw against Southampton will be enough to secure Europa League football next season for the Hammers.
We could even lose the match and still finish sixth if results elsewhere go our way!
In order to win the game, the West Ham players will have to be fully focused and committed to the task ahead.
Having Fabianski back in goal will be a big boost to our hopes of picking up a positive result as well.
According to Moyes, however, it is very much touch and go as to whether the Poland international will be fit enough for selection on Sunday.
