Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has lost his appeal for his suspension to be overturned.
Fabianki was sent off in Swansea's 3-1 loss against West Ham United for denying a clear goal scoring opportunity but appealed the red card. The FA denied the appeal and Fabianski will miss the next match. Gerhard Tremmel will likely fill in and could be an option for those adventurous enough to experiment with a £ 1.00M goalkeeper. That should open up funds for an overall elite squad elsewhere. Dec 11 - 12:31 AM

Swansea goalkeeper Lucasz Fabianski was sent off in the team's 3-1 loss to West Ham United.

The goalkeeper rushed out to try and prevent Diafra Sakho from scoring but the referee decided that Fabianski illegally prevented Sakho from a clear goalscoring opportunity and sent him off. Some replays suggest Sakho may have used his hand in handling the ball right before but the referee did not see that. Fabianski will be suspended for one match and Gerhard Tremmel should start in his place. The negative 11 points Fabianski had today has brought his price down to £ 6.52M, which would make him a good investment once he returns.

Lukasz Fabianski is currently the second best goalkeeper in the Yahoo! fantasy game.

Fabianski has been very good this season and that's partly due to his team beating up on bad opposition and partly due to his fantastic play. The problem is that Swansea face Arsenal and Manchester City next and Fabianski isn't likely to continue getting clean sheets. We expect a serious regression here and we would avoid him in the next two matches.

Lukasz Fabianski has continued his impressive season for Swansea and helped them keep a clean sheet over the weekend.

Swansea faced a poor Leicester City side at home but it was still a good outing for Fabianski who was able to save four shots. The ex-Arsenal goalkeeper is third amongst goalkeepers in fantasy scoring this season behind Thibaut Courtois and Fraser Forster. Swansea don't have a good enough defense to make Fabianski match-up proof but he remains a fantastic option against teams in the lower half of the table.

Lukasz Fabianski has enjoyed a successful switch from Arsenal to Swansea City so far this season and it has put him at the top of the leaderboard for goalkeepers in the first six weeks of the Yahoo game.

Fabianski was a highly touted goalkeeping option in the preseason by the Rotoworld staff, given his minuscule price tag, and the faith has paid off so far. In fact, though the keeper position can be a volatile one, budget options have been paying off so far this season. Of the top five scoring keepers to date in Yahoo, only one is from a traditional top 6 club, and that is Thibaut Courtois, who was given a cheap opening price tag himself. Expect the balance to shift somewhat over the course of the season, but six matches should be enough of a sample size to feel some trust in investing in keepers like Fabianski, who just so happens to be home this weekend to a reeling Newcastle side.

In an odd move, Swansea have signed former Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski on a free transfer after his contract at the Emirates ran out.

Fresh off the heels of his FA Cup win, Lukasz Fabianski was, in theory, looking for a club where he would be the likely starting goalkeeper. Given some of his performances this past season, it didn't seem an unreasonable goal either mid-table in the Premier League or elsewhere in Europe. It is unclear why he chose Swansea where Michel Vorm is a strong starter and Gerhart Tremmel is a solid back-up. Exactly where Fabianski fits in and why Swansea are spending scarce resources on a third goalkeeper is a bit of a mystery.

FA Cup winning goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski has been linked with a potential move to Swansea now that he is out of contract at Arsenal.

For this rumor to have any legs, it would imply that Michel Vorm would be leaving Swansea this summer as well. Fabianski has indicated that he is interested in finding a club in the Premier League or elsewhere where he can expect to start full time. If he were looking to remain a back-up then he would likely be welcome to stay at Arsenal where he'd probably be paid more and have higher profile opportunities. I wouldn't put too much stock in this one until you see something about Vorm leaving the Swans.

Arsenal starts Fabianski, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Arteta, Ramsey, Cazorla, Ozil, Podolski, and Giroud.

The only mild surprise is that likely-to-leave keeper Lukasz Fabianski is selected over Wojciech Szczesny. The line-up, with the exception of Fabianski and Podolski in place of the long-term injury absentee Theo Walcott is Arsenal's preferred starting line-up and should be heavily favored to win.

It was a nervy time but Arsenal rode Lukasz Fabianski's two penalty shootout saves to a win over upstarts Wigan Athletic.

Arsenal went behind to giant-killers Wigan on a penalty kick from Jordi Gomez but it was ultimately from the spot that the Gunners would win their FA Cup semi-final. After equalizing on a Per Mertesacker goal in 82nd minute Arsenal and Wigan played two scoreless extra periods before going to penalties. Lukasz Fabianski threw down the gauntlet by saving Wigan's first two penalties. With Arsenal's first four takers - Arteta, Kallstrom, Giroud, and Cazorla - all scoring Arsene Wenger's men were through to face the winner of Hull City vs. Sheffield United.
