West Ham United defender Craig Dawson spoke to WHUFC.com and named one Hammers player he loves playing alongside.

The 30-year-old joined the East London outfit on loan from Watford in October.

And he has been an absolute revelation since breaking into the team at the end of December.

His fine form has coincided with West Ham’s superb run of six wins on the trot in all competitions.

The Hammers have conceded just three goals in the seven games that Dawson has played.

The centre-back has been helped massively by the players in front of him, however.

And he told WHUFC.com how Tomas Soucek has really impressed him since his move to the London Stadium three months ago:

“Tomas (Soucek) is a great player to have ahead of you, he works so hard for the team, and picks up great positions in both boxes.”

What an incredible signing Soucek has proven to be for West Ham.

The 25-year-old has been absolutely brilliant for the Hammers since moving to the London Stadium for around £17 million in the summer (Football.London).

He impressed at West Ham previously on loan, and he has already established himself as somewhat of a cult hero at the club.

The Czech ace has scored seven goals in 20 Premier League games for West Ham this term. In those outings, the 25-year-old has averaged 1.9 tackles, 1.5 interceptions, 2.6 clearances and 1.1 dribbles per games. He has also won an average of six aerial duals per match (Who Scored).

It is little wonder why Dawson loves playing alongside the former Slavia Prague ace. And Soucek surely loves playing with Dawson as well.
