Soucek sent off as West Ham held to goalless draw at Fulham

West Ham United had Tomas Soucek sent off in stoppage time at relegation-threatened Fulham who largely dominated the match but had to settle for a 0-0 draw in the Premier League on Saturday.

Soucek was dismissed after referee Mike Dean checked the VAR monitor and decided the midfielder had elbowed Aleksandar Mitrovic on the edge of the box before a free kick.

Fulham remain 18th with 15 points from 22 games, eight points outside the safety zone, while West Ham missed the chance to go into the top four and stay fifth with 39 points from 23.

Scott Parker's Fulham side have reached the stage where wins are urgently needed if they are to stand a chance of staying up but for all their effort they could not convert their chances.

Striker Mitrovic and Ivan Cavaleiro had opportunities to clinch the points for the hosts, although West Ham went closest with Vladimir Coufal heading against the bar after the break.
