Soucek warns against complacency ahead of Wolves clash

Tomáš Souček is still thinking about the 5-0 Fulham defeat as Wolverhampton Wanderers prepare to visit the London Stadium today. Despite the disappointment, The Irons have maintained a decent record, losing only one match in our last eight across all competitions. The win on Thursday when Souček and co secured a comfortable 2-0 victory over SC Freiburg in the UEFA Europa League Group A.

The triumph against Bundesliga opposition not only sent the Hammers into the round of 16 as group winners but also marked a significant achievement for Souček. The midfielder praised the team’s performance not only in Thursday’s match but throughout their Group A campaign, emphasising the importance of topping the group. “We wanted to be first in the group, and that makes it much easier,” Souček stated.

As we face Wolverhampton Wanderers in our fifth December match, Souček acknowledges the crucial role of these upcoming fixtures in defining the season. The intense schedule, including clashes against Liverpool in the Carabao Cup quarter-final and Manchester United in league action after Wolves, holds the potential to shape a good Christmas period for the squad.

Reflecting on recent performances, Souček was clearly proud of the team’s resilience in bouncing back from the Fulham defeat. The midfielder stressed the need for discipline and readiness for the upcoming challenges, recognising the difficulty of playing matches every three days.

Thursday’s victory marked the third consecutive year that West Ham secured top spot in a European group. Whilst the focus is on progressing through the UEFA Europa League knockout stages, Souček is keen to ensure West Ham’s continued presence on the European stage in the seasons ahead. “For me, being in Europe is a massive thing,” Souček added.
