Michail Antonio does look a £7million bargain right now for West Ham
The main criticism of West Ham attacker Michail Antonio is that he’s inconsistent, something that he’s struggled with since he joined for £7million (Sky Sports) back in 2015.
He can go from a dangerous tricky player ripping up the Premier League one day, to a non-existent figure that drops out of favour at the London Stadium.
Antonio appears to have rediscovered his form in the last couple of games and it’s when he’s playing like he currently is that he becomes a total bargain signing.
The 28-year-old has scored in his last back-to-back Premier League games and the Hammers are themselves on a four-game winning streak to climb up to ninth in the table.
His versatility has seen him drop in at right-back on one occasions, where he was solid defensively and demonstrated his running power down the flank.
He turned in arguably his best display of the season at centre-forward in the 2-0 win away at Fulham last week and his presence in attack can massively boost the team.
He’s got an immense work-rate and can trouble most defenders with his directness when he’s in a confident mood.
Antonio should be eying more success and an extended run of form with games against Watford, Southampton, Burnley and Brighton just around the corner.
