West Ham boss David Moyes provides updates on Fabianski & Randolph after Man City

Man City down West Ham

Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off saw West Ham face off with table-topping Manchester City.

However, during the clash, Randolph appeared to pick up an issue of his own, and was unable to take goal kicks on several occasions.

And, speaking post-match, David Moyes confirmed that the shot-stopper has picked up a thigh injury:

As a result, West Ham’s fans were likely concerned that their side would be without their two main goalkeepers when facing Leeds in nine days’ time.

However, the club’s boss also provided an update on Fabianski, confirming that he hopes to have the former Arsenal man back to face the Peacocks:
