The Scot had misplaced all 4 earlier appearances by an mixture of 12-1 on a floor the place he had success till leaving Everton for Manchester United in 2013.
Having completed their major job of not conceding, the Hammers benefited from some luck when Aaron Cresswell’s mis-hit shot deflected off Yerry Mina and into the trail of Soucek, who couldn’t miss.
“The players have played three games in six days and I don’t think you would have said there was any difference in how the fitness looked, or how they were,” Moyes stated. “So great credit to the players for the way they have gone about it. That is a big change in the mentality here at West Ham, and they are showing it in the games.”
The recreation received off to an inauspicious begin for West Ham when goalkeeper Lucasz Fabianski was injured within the warmup and had to get replaced by Darren Rudolph earlier than kickoff.
