Some West Ham United fans were left slamming the display of Tomas Soucek, despite their club’s 1-0 win over Burnley in the Premier League yesterday afternoon.
Considering the high standards that he has set so far for himself in the 2020/21 term, the Czech Republic international did not have the best of games against Sean Dyche’s team and perhaps had his blushes spared as Michail Antonio grabbed the only goal of the match within the first 10 minutes of the first half thanks to a lovely cross from Pablo Fornals.
Should Soucek start for West Ham?
The 25-year-old lost out on no fewer than 10 of his duels in the clash, which was the most lost out of any member of the West Ham team on the pitch, and he also lost possession of the ball 17 times, as well as getting himself a yellow card in the 73rd minute of the clash (Sofascore).
West Ham fan reaction to Soucek display
These Hammers fans slammed his performance on Twitter, with one Iron claiming that the central midfield player was ‘clumsy’:
“Soucek has been pretty clumsy today”
“Tbh a poor game from Soucek (with his high standards) this far.”
“Would like to see us control the game more. Not a great first half from Soucek looks tired”
“Fornals playing well and works with 3 other pacey players up there with him, he doesn’t give the ball away or waste possession that often. Soucek hasn’t stopped giving the ball away annoyingly. Final ball against for us hasn’t been good enough #COYI”
“Soucek has been very not himself today must be the effect of not winning POTM. Happened to Fornals too. #WHUBUR”
“Only real negatives for me personally, Soucek not having a great game.”
