London – Vladimír Coufal took part in assisting to win West Ham 2: 1 on Burnley in the 34th round of the English Football League. The whole match for the winner was also played by Tomáš Souček, who at the beginning caused a penalty, after which the home team took the lead. However, the “hammers” quickly turned the score around thanks to two goals by Mikhail Antonia. In the table, they are fifth by three points behind the fourth Chelsea, which they lost in the previous match, and continue to live the hope of participating in the Champions League.

West Ham started badly again after two defeats. Souček fouled in Chris Wood’s lime and the New Zealand footballer scored the eleventh goal in the league this year, which confirmed the position of Burnley’s top scorer. However, the guests answered soon. After Coufal’s center, Antonio equalized with a header, and a moment later the Jamaican striker scored another goal. With the ninth goal in the competition, he caught up with the best team shooters Souček and Jesse Lingard.

In the 35th minute, Matěj Vydra almost rejoiced at the equalizing goal, who also managed to score West Ham, but Craig Dawson struck in front of an empty goal at the last minute. The otter took turns after an hour of play.
