A number of West Ham supporters have been reacting in shocked fashion to the facial injury Tomas Soucek picked up in the win over Everton.
The Hammers faced a testing trip to Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon but they passed with flying colours. David Moyes’ men were the better team throughout the contest and deservedly took home all three points thanks to Angelo Ogbonna’s goal, which sealed a 1-0 victory.
Should West Ham have signed Toney?
It means West Ham have jumped to seventh place in the Premier League table, putting them level on points with Manchester United.
Soucek was typically impressive for the Hammers, winning three tackles and five duels and misplacing just one of his 46 passes, but he didn’t get through the match unscathed, picking up a horrible injury after being kicked in the face by Salomon Rondon.
After the game, West Ham fan Tom Atherton (@Athers32) shared a photo of the midfielder on Twitter, showing the extent of the damage.
West Ham fans shocked by Soucek injury
These Hammers fans reacted to the “disgusting” image with shock and fury over how it was inflicted by Rondon.
“Yup, game should’ve been stopped. AND a head injury seems too. Crazy VAR needs to be able to stop the game if the referee makes a mistake“
“@salorondon23 you know what you did. That was disgusting, nasty and despicable“
“What in the world?!“
“Unbelievable, split lip open, slashed across his nose. cheekbone cut open. No foul or freekick!!!“
