West Ham United are hopeful that number one goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski will be fit for their Premier League game with Burnley in just under a couple of weeks from now.

The Hammers travelled to Everton at the weekend and ran out 1-0 winners thanks to a late goal from Tomas Soucek.

Indeed, it was a fine performance from all concerned with them recording a good clean sheet as Darren Randolph came in between the sticks.

Fabianski had been due to feature against the Toffees but pulled up in the warm-up and was withdrawn from the starting XI, though the hope is the knock isn’t too serious.

Indeed, as per the Standard, the Irons are hoping he’ll be back in time for the game with Burnley the weekend of the 16th and 17th.

Rush Football’s take

The Hammers have had a good season so far and the win at Goodison Park underlined how much progress they have made under David Moyes.

There would have been little concern in bringing in Randolph at the weekend as he is a good stopper in his own right, though obviously, Fabianski has that edge on him at the moment.

He’ll hopefully be back before too long, then, and with FA Cup football this weekend it appears he might not miss any more league action for the time being.
