Fulham 0-0 West Ham: Hammers grind out a point despite Soucek red card

David Moyes-West Ham United

West Ham and Fulham cancelled each other out in the Premier League earlier today.

The Hammers will be disappointed to have dropped two points after the kind of form they have been in the recent weeks.

David Moyes’ men were favourites heading into the game and Fulham will be reasonably happy with the draw.

The Hammers are very much in the race for a top four finish and they cannot afford to drop points in these games if they want to compete with the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham.

The likes of Jarrod Bowen and Tomas Soucek had the opportunity to put the visitors ahead early on in the first half but they failed to hit the target with their efforts.

West Ham dominated the game from start to finish but they failed to make the most of their dominance and create clear cut goal scoring opportunities.

Ademola Lookman had a chance to put the hosts ahead but the Fulham attacker failed to convert in the first half.

West Ham full back Vladimir Coufal had a glorious chance in the second half but he hit the crossbar with his header.

The Hammers ended the game with ten men after Tomas Soucek was sent off for an elbow on the Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Today’s draw leaves West Ham one point behind fourth placed Liverpool in the Premier League table.

Fulham remain 18th in the table with just 15 points so far.
