Mike Dean & VAR face backlash again after controversial red card for Soucek

The Czech Republic man was shown a red card after a tangle with Aleksandar Mitrovic

Tomas Soucek was controversially sent off during West Ham’s London derby draw with Fulham.

The Czech Republic midfielder was lining up to attack a free-kick on the edge of the Fulham box when he tangled with Cottagers striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Soucek was trying to create space that was being denied to him by Mitrobvic, and in a bid to get a yard of clearance he caught the Fulham man with his arm.
