Danny Mills has claimed Lukasz Fabianski let down his West Ham teammates with his error-strewn performance against Liverpool.
The former Leeds United full-back, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, suggested the 34-year-old was at for two of the league leaders’ goals, calling the second “a really bad error.”
Fabianski got a strong hand to Georginio Wijnaldum’s opener but failed to divert it around his right-hand post.
David Moyes’ side quickly responded through Issa Diop and just before the hour mark, the Hammers had an unprecedented lead at the league leaders thanks to Pablo Fornals.
However, with little over 20 minutes to play the goalie allowed a tame Mohammed Salah strike to roll through his legs to level the scores at 2-2.
When asked for his assessment of an uncharacteristic performance from the Poland international, Mills told Football Insider: “The first goal he will be disappointed with, he got himself into a good position and he let it slip. Maybe he mistimed it slightly.
“The second one is a really bad error. Simple as that. He knows it, his teammates know it.
“It is tough as a goalkeeper, there is nowhere to hide when that happens.
“At the crucial time, it really lets Liverpool back into it. Their tails were then up and they put West Ham under constant pressure.”
Sadio Mane would add a third 13 minutes later to complete the comeback for Jurgen Klopp’s unbeaten side.
The Irons remain in the relegation zone after the loss, one point adrift from Aston Villa and safety.
