West Ham United appeal Tomáš Souček red card



West Ham United have submitted notice to The Football Association to appeal the red card Tomáš Souček was shown in Saturday’s Premier League fixture against Fulham.

The Czech midfielder was sent-off in added time at the end of the second half after coming into contact with Fulham forward Aleksandar Mitrović.

Referee Mike Dean was asked to look at the incident on the pitchside monitor by VAR official Lee Mason and decreed that the No28’s actions constituted violent conduct.

The appeal against Souček’s red card will now be reviewed by an independent regulatory commission at the Football Association.
