Soucek: West Ham confident after horror fixture run

T

omas Soucek says West Ham can head into their next run of games with the confidence to dominate proceedings after a string of encouraging displays against top sides.

Having come through what was comfortably the toughest start to the season for any Premier League club, the Hammers are now looking forward to contests with two of the league’s slower starters in Fulham and Sheffield United either side of the November international break, before facing Aston Villa.

“We felt we were very unfortunate on Saturday,” said Soucek. “We were winning 1-0, and still had the game at 1-1 with five minutes to go.  

“I wanted more points, but when we lost the first two games and we looked to our schedule we knew it was difficult. But from Arsenal, we got better and better, and now we’ll work hard towards the next game and we want to win against Fulham.

“It will be a different challenge from the last four games for us now.

“We’ve been playing teams from the top six recently and now we want to keep more of the ball and create more chances.

“Against Liverpool we created two or three chances and we have to score two goals but against Fulham we want to create more than that.”

West Ham will still be without striker Michail Antonio for Saturday’s visit of Fulham but are hopeful that the 30-year-old will be able to return from his hamstring injury following the international break.
