Hammers win Soucek appeal

West Ham United have confirmed that Tomas Soucek’s red card picked up during Saturday’s goalless draw at Fulham has been rescinded following a successful appeal.

Soucek was dismissed by referee Mike Dean following consultation with VAR after a coming together with Fulham’s Aleksander Mitrovic.

But after the controversial incident was reviewed by an independent regulatory commission at the Football Association, the decision was overturned with immediate effect.
