Loads of West Ham fans heaped praise on fan favourite Michail Antonio after his side’s 3-1 win against Southampton on Saturday.
The Hammers climbed out of the bottom three after what was their first Premier League win in two months. The 29-year-old contributed to the goalscoring tally after getting the Irons’ third of the afternoon. £20m signing Jarrod Bowen and Sebastian Haller ensured that David Moyes’ side took all three points from the affair, moving above Aston Villa in the relegation fight.
Antonio’s goal was only his second of the season and his 30th for the club. With his contract set to expire next year, he impressed with his attacking intent and his ability to create chances for his teammates. He managed to get two shots on target, created one big chance, completed four key passes and had a pass success rate of 75%, as per SofaScore.
As a result, supporters expressed their delight for Antonio on social media. One fan described the Englishman as a “beast”, while another said that his performance was “amazing” as the Hammers got back to winning ways at the London Stadium. Check out some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
