West Ham face massive injury blow as Fabianski is ruled out for two months
West Ham have been dealt a massive blow, as their star shot-stopper, Lukasz Fabianski, has suffered a torn hip injury, keeping him out of football for at least two months.
The Pole was forced off during West Ham's 2-2 draw away at Bournemouth during the weekend, with the 34-year-old being substituted in the 34th minute.
Fabianski has been tremendous ever since he signed for the Hammers, winning the Player of the Season award for his performances last season, starting all 38 of their Premier League games.
West Ham's only two other senior goalkeepers are Roberto Jimenez, who is 33-years-old and signed for free last May, and David Martin, who is also 33 and signed for free from Millwall during the summer.
Jimenez was the one chosen to replace Fabianski during the match, and he will most likely be the one that is preferred, ahead of Martin.
West Ham currently sit in fourth, being unbeaten in all their matches since their opening day defeat against the champions, Manchester City.
