West Ham goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski conceded a penalty in the second minute, when he brought down Patrick Bamford and seemed to have redeemed himself by saving Mateusz Klich’s spot-kick.

However, a retake was ordered due to Fabianski leaving his line and Klich scored at the second attempt.

Soucek put West Ham level in the 25th minute, out-muscling defender Stuart Dallas to head the ball into the net.
