West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has insisted his side has the quality to compete with Arsenal, ahead of their midday clash at The London Stadium on today.
The Polish international spent seven seasons at Arsenal, making 78 appearances in all competitions, before moving to Swansea City in 2014 for regular first team football.
He will be well aware of the task facing his side today as they face off with their London neighbours. The 33- year-old West Ham number one is fully confident of his team’s abilities though, and fancies their chances of an upset against his former club.
“When I look at our team, it’s full of quality and I think that, when someone is missing because of injury or any other issues, it doesn’t really affect us because we still know that whoever is going to replace him has so much quality about him that we’re not really losing anything,” Fabianski told West Ham’s official website.
“When you look at our squad, there is loads of quality and that gives us the belief that we’re going to compete, even if there are important players missing.”
