With Lukasz Fabianski out injured for 2-3 months, as reported by ExWHUEmployee, Roberto is now likely to be in goal for West Ham during that time.

The 33-year-old has played both of the Hammers’ Carabao Cup matches, while he also replaced Fabianski when the Poland international came off against AFC Bournemouth, as per Transfermarkt.

So when it was confirmed Fabianski would be out for an extended period, it became apparent the Spaniard will likely be replacing him:

There are many fans who have been far from happy about this, mostly due to his performance against Oxford United, in which he let in some of the four goals without seeming to make much effort to stop them, as shown in the highlights video on the Sky Sports Football YouTube channel.

However, many other fans are putting this to the side, calling for the goalkeeper to be wholeheartedly backed by West Ham supporters.

One fan has drawn comparisons to Darren Randolph, while another has claimed that Roberto isn’t a bad goalkeeper, but has just been made to look it because Fabianski is so good.
