Chelsea fans chant about West Ham star Lukasz Fabianski during Champions League win v Juventus

Chelsea thrashed Juventus 4-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday night, but West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski still received a mention from the home fans.

The Blues booked their place in the knock-out round of Europe’s elite club competition at Stamford Bridge with victory over the Italian side, and supporters took the opportunity to mock the Polish ex-Arsenal shot-stopper in their goal.

“‘You’re just a [expletive] Fabianski’ chant the Chelsea supporters to Wojciech Szczesny,” Football.Ldn journalist Adam Newson shared via his personal Twitter profile.

Poles apart?

Five years separate Szczesny and 36-year-old Fabianski but the two have been battling each other for the number one jersey for most of their careers.

The duo spent five years together at Arsenal before Fabianski eventually left for Swansea City in 2015.

He enjoyed four seasons in South Wales before moving to West Ham, where he has continued to thrive.

Szczesny, meanwhile, permanently left the Gunners for Juventus in 2017 and has established himself as one of Europe’s finest goalkeepers.

He has also won the battle to be Poland’s number one in recent years, with Fabianski taking a backseat as his deputy before retiring earlier this year.

It seems that Chelsea could not resist the opportunity to mock an ex-Arsenal player at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, even if it meant praising the West Ham goalkeeper.

Fabianski has started all 12 Premier League games for the Irons this season, as well as playing once in the Europa League.

In other West Ham news, Jamie Carragher sent a one-word tweet to this Irons star after what he saw on Tuesday.
