CandH Exclusive: Fabianski injury update

By Hughie Southon

Lukasz Fabianski suffered a small knock during the game against Manchester United and may miss the game against Palace on Sunday.

It’s not clear what injury he suffered but he was forced off at half time with Alphone Areola taking his place between the sticks.

The French international had little to do but has shown in Conference games that he is a more than capable replacement for Fab.

Nobody is ruling out the Pole from the game at the weekend but there remains a doubt over whether he will have recovered for the game against the 10th place team with victory seeing us rise above the south London outfit.

A key source explained to us Fabianski is not seriously injured adding: “However, he cannot be considered certain for the game against Palace.”

It also remains to be seen whether the manager will give Nayef Aguerd a start after saying he was going to give him time to become a regular at the back

  1. It looked as though he might have got a small concussion from heading the ball. His landing was awkward, but his knee looked ok (similar landing to Zoumas horror injury at Chelsea). As Fab moved back into his box, he fell over looking confused and dissy, and at that point I was surprised he didn’t get medical attention. I might be wrong if course, but I would put my money on a small concussion

  2. It looked very much like he jarred his knee on the way out.
    Anyway good for Areola to get a bit of a run.
    His distribution is better than Fabianski and a few quick breakouts might just make us a bit more attack minded
