Ghanaian midfielder, Mohammed Kudus has been voted the Man of the Match in West Ham United's slim win at Lincoln City in the EFL Cup.

Tomas Soucek's only goal in the second half ensured that the Premier League side advanced to the fourth round, where they will face Arsenal.

Kudus pulled 45.8% of votes to win the Man of the Match award, as confirmed by West Ham's official handle on X.

The former Ajax midfielder has been in fine form since moving to the London club in the summer transfer window.

Kudus has scored two goals in five games for West Ham, with both strikes coming in the game against Backa Topola in the Europa League.

Meanwhile, match-winner Soucek remains confident of the Irons's chances in the Carabao Cup.

"We are playing in four competitions this year and we want to go as far as possible in each of them," the 28-year-old told West Ham TV.
"We want to be successful. We put out a good squad against Lincoln and that shows how important we consider this competition. We don’t just have one small group of players, we have 20 players who are ready to play anywhere, anytime, which is the best thing for all of us," he added.

West Ham will be hoping to recover from back-to-back EPL defeats when they host Sheffield United on Saturday at the London Olympic Stadium.

Kudus scores debut West Ham goal

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Kudus scored his first West Ham goal in his first start for the club as the Hammers came from a goal down to beat Backa Topola in their Europa League group opener.

The Ghana international, who joined West Ham in the summer transfer window, had to wait until his third game for the club to open his goal-scoring account.

Kudus gave the Europa Conference League winners the lead in the second half after heading home from a James Ward-Prowse corner kick.
