West Ham midfielder Soucek on Man City defeat: We showed fighting spirit

West Ham midfielder Tomas Soucek insists there's no reason to be down after Sunday's defeat at Manchester City.

While Souček was frustrated his team's efforts were not rewarded with a result to take home, he explained the Hammers could take heart from their performance.

“It's frustrating. You cannot be happy when you have lost so we are disappointed with the result," the No28 told the club's website.

“I think that we started quite well and we created two or three opportunities but we couldn't score.

“We conceded the first goal and the first goal changed the whole game. We are frustrated but I'm happy that we fought to the end. We showed good spirit and I'm proud of the guys."

West Ham host Brighton on Wednesday night.
