Lukasz Fabianski: West Ham goalkeeper 'out for a couple of weeks'

Lukasz Fabianski of West Ham United goes down injured during the Premier League match between Sheffield United and West Ham United at Bramall Lane on January 10, 2020 in Sheffield, United Kingdom.

Fabianski will be out for up to two weeks due to inflammation of the scar tissue in his hip following surgery.

Fabianski, 34, underwent surgery for a muscle problem that he sustained in September and returned to action late last year, but he was substituted after only 13 minutes in last Friday's 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United.

West Ham said scans confirmed the Pole suffered irritation of scar tissue, which is common after surgery.

"It's good news in the sense that Lukasz hasn't aggravated or suffered any recurrence of the previous injury," West Ham medical head Richard Collinge said.

"We now just need to let the inflammation settle down and expect Lukasz to be available again within a couple of weeks."

West Ham's dip in form this season has coincided with the injury to Fabianski, as they dropped from fifth in September to 17th by the time he returned against Leicester City on 28 December.

Defeat by the Blades left West Ham 16th with 22 points from 21 matches ahead of Saturday's home game against Everton.
