West Ham boss Moyes explain Fabianski absence for Man City defeat

West Ham boss David Moyes has explained the absence of Lukasz Fabianski in defeat to Manchester City.

The Poland goalkeeper was a late withdrawal for the 2-1 loss.

Moyes said, "Lukasz Fabianski was injured today. Unfortunately, somebody stood on his arm in training as he made a save.

"It was an accidental collision and I don't think it's too bad.

"Darren Randolph has been out in recent weeks with a bit of a thigh strain. He's been back in training for a week or two but I think he felt the effects of his thigh again.

"Thankfully, we got him through to the end of the game. We were ready to make a change, but we found a way for him not to have to take the kicks.

"Hopefully he'll get over it and we'll also get Lukasz back."
