former player

Carlton Cole

thinks that

Tomas Soucek

was a good signing for the club, even better than Fernandes for Manchester United.

“He's been immense this season. For me, he's obviously the signing of any club so far this season out of every club, pound for pound,”

he said on Sky Sports of the midfielder, who has netted seven goals this term.

“You talk about Bruno Fernandes being so impactful [at] Man Utd but for me, pound for pound, he's been even better than Fernandes.

“He's been everywhere. whenever he's on that pitch he breeds confidence for every West Ham player and every West Ham person connected to the club.

“I wasn't expecting to have a goalscoring midfielder at West Ham and he's just come in and done the job. He's been unbelievable and everyone's taken confidence from his performances so far.

“He's been outstanding and when you've got a player like that in your team, especially as the driving force in midfield, he's enabled to chip in with the goals and with Declan Rice around him, it's opened up the game for him too.”

West Ham’s next match is against Aston Villa, and then they will face Manchester United in the FA Cup, where Soucek has the chance to show his quality against Bruno Fernandes.
