Only the stars of Liverpool are better than Coufal. And Moyes showed that he did not trust the King

He is still waiting for the first goal in the West Ham jersey, but on Wednesday evening in the winning duel against Norwich, Vladimír Coufal celebrated his tenth anniversary assistance in the English Premier League. These are statistics that rank the Czech footballer among the absolute elite of the entire competition.

Only Liverpool superstars Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson have improved goal passes between defenders over the same period.

In his first season among the English cream, Coufal recorded seven assists in 34 duels. Eighteen matches have been played this year, and Wednesday’s perfect center on Jarrod Bowen’s head was his third notch.

Before that, the 29-year-old right-backs won in the second round in August with a clear victory over Leicester, when his bid was turned into a goal by Mikhail Antonio.

He added a second assist in early December in a winning hit against Chelsea. Bowen also benefited from his work at the time, and it was a key 2: 2 equalizer, foreshadowing the subsequent unforgettable direct from Arthur Masuaku’s football.

It is the English winger who has an excellent form and is loudly talking about being nominated for the national team. Against the Canaries, he did what he wanted at London Stadium, constantly tearing the defense of the last team and was clearly the best player of the match. He scored two goals, a tough shot from his hat-trick, and hit the crossbar.

In addition to the bright biggest star, he also deservesly praises the men on the islands, thanks to whom Bowen can attack almost carefree on the right. Reliable and tireless Coufal.

Take a look at Coufal’s goal center in the cut:

“He seems to be returning to his best form. He was literally pulling strings from his right back. He was a constant threat and his assistance was perfect,” wrote in his review.

“Vladi put it right on my head,” the shooter Bowen praised himself in the post-match interviews and thanked his Czech partner once more under Coufal’s contribution on social networks. “My brother,” he wrote to the joint photo and added a loving heart.

“The right side was directed by Coufal,” he added in the Evening Standard. “He rushed forward at every opportunity,” Football praised. London.

According to fan insider blog Claret and Hugh, manager David Moyes returns to “good old Coufal”.

This time he had to do without his compatriot Tomáš Souček. The indispensable engine of the hammer backup was missing due to illness for the first time in the season, and while there were fears or at least curiosity among the fans before the match, how a team without a Czech midfielder will cope, Souček’s absence was not a topic after the duel.

“We are not sure if Souček will recover by Sunday, but we should not miss Lanzini in its current form,” they wrote in Claret and Hugh.

The skilful playmaker Manuel Lanzini moved to a lower position next to Declan Rice and managed the atypical role completely clearly. Moyes’ little Argentine showed that there is an alternative to the inseparable double-pivot Rice – Souček still exists in the current cadre.

But she’s definitely not Alex the King. Another Czech national team member, who was brought to the hosting by the Hammers in the summer to increase the competition in the middle of the advance and to allow Souček and Rice to rest, sat down on the bench.

Moyes did not let the 23-year-old native of Košice on the field, although in addition to Souček, he also missed another back-up, the legendary captain Mark Noble. In full nudity, it turned out on Wednesday that the Scottish manager simply did not trust the King. The summer exercise of the option to transfer from Spartak Moscow thus seems extremely unlikely at the moment.
