West Ham United insider @ has recently provided an injury update on Polish goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

On New Year’s Day, the 35-year-old shot-stopper missed the Hammers’ 1-0 over Everton at Goodison Park (per Transfermarkt)

That was, in fact, the only Premier League game which Fabianski has missed for this season, having featured in all 16 of their other league matches.

As explained in a post by Claret and Hugh, the Polish ‘keeper missed with the after picking up an injury during the warm-up.

In the latest episode of The West Ham Way Podcast, @ExWHUemployee provided an injury update on the squad and shared the latest on Fabianski.

Who did West Ham United face in their opening fixture of the 2020/21 Premier League season?

He said: “For the game against Stockport on Monday, I think [Ryan] Fredericks will be out of that because of the [virus] test and having to isolate, unfortunately.

“It’s come too soon for Conor Coventry and Fabianski will not play, I think.

“He had a slight tweak of his thigh before the Everton game – I don’t think it’s serious. I think he’ll be back for the league game, but they won’t risk him in the cup.”

TIF Thoughts on what @ExWHUemployee said about Lukasz Fabianski…

As can be seen in what the in-the-know podcaster had to say, he believes that the 35-year-old goalkeeper will not feature against Stockport but he will be back in action in the next league game.

Will West Ham miss Lukasz Fabianski against Stockport?

No, we'll still win

With the Irons back in league action against Burnley on Saturday 16th January, it seems that West Ham fans will not have to wait long to see the £2.25m-rated ‘keeper between the sticks.

However, with Darren Randolph having delivered a 6.99/10 performance rating after stepping in against Everton, making him their fifth-best player on the day (per WhoScored), that would suggest the Hammers have suitable cover until Fabianski’s return.
