West Ham fans are getting quite used to winning games at the moment, the Hammers have won their last four on the bounce in the Premier League. The Hammers are currently 4th on the form table over the last six games, and with Michail Antonio’s recent resurgence it looks like that form will be set to continue.

Antonio struggled somewhat under the last West Ham manager David Moyes, but since the appointment of Manuel Pellegrini it looks like the winger-turned striker is in a much happier place and his football is showing just that. Even at the start of the season, it wasn’t easy for the 28-year-old, and his two Premier League goals have only come in the last few weeks, with his strike yesterday after he grabbed one against Cardiff.
There is simply no doubting that Antonio is a key player in this West Ham side. The ex-Nottingham Forest man is a superb option for Pellegrini, and the fact that we’re not even at the half-way point of the season and he’s already featured as a centre-forward, a winger on both flanks and as a right-back speaks volumes about his cabilities. Antonio will be desperate to continue shining, and he now has a platform to do so under his the Chilean gaffer.

I’ve been very critical of you over the last few seasons. But in the last week or so you’ve shut me up and long may it continue

Greatly improved over the last few games, you look fitter, hungrier and maybe fallen back in love with West Ham. Peace

Credit Where Credit Is Due! I've been one of your biggest critics in recent months but you & a few others players have knuckled down & really brought into what Pellegrini has been trying to get across to the players. Injuries have given some players a chance Well Done #COYI #WHU

The Hammers are in awe of Antonio’s performances as of late and will hope his miraculous turnaround can continue well into the new year.
