Commenting upon losing latest Boxing Day home game against Southampton, West Ham right-back Vladimir Coufal stated:

It was a difficult afternoon, and a hard one to accept. We lost at home and it’s not acceptable to concede three times. We were back in the game twice, and it shouldn’t happen [to lose this way], but we have to keep going and be focused on Watford.

We have had a good season and are still up in the table but we have to take back our basic things – do them properly and we have to be better defensively, as well as being more clinical in attack. These are basic things, but sometimes it happens [like this].

“We have to keep fighting together. In this period the schedule is like any other Christmas period in the Premier League, but unfortunately this time is more difficult because some teams have a rest, some teams are playing.  I’m sure there will be a good atmosphere with our fans at Watford and we need to stay together and positive”.
