Some West Ham fans have had it with Michail Antonio

Some West Ham supporters have had enough of Michail Antonio.

The utility man was selected to start by Manuel Pellegrini for the Carabao Cup match on Wednesday and played the full 90 minutes against Tottenham Hotspur at the London Stadium.

Antonio has struggled this season to convince Hammers fans of his worth after a severe dip in form, and he did not fare well against Spurs.

Antonio was extremely poor for the home side, failing to cause any real problems for the Tottenham defence.

He struggled to control the ball on a number of occasions, was wasteful with the few chances he got and appeared clumsy and unbalanced.

Antonio future in doubt after Spurs shocker?

The Englishman could well face being sold after such a poor display.

The fact is, it hasn’t been his first this season.

It really has been a fall from grace for Antonio, who was a huge threat a couple of seasons ago, especially in the air.

Arguably his versatility stopped Pellegrini from selling him in the summer, but he is doing little to justify the decision to keep him at the moment.

The performance against Spurs feels like the beginning of the end for the player, who has enjoyed a decent three seasons with the Hammers.

West Ham fans react

Some West Ham fans really couldn’t believe the performance of Antonio, and took to social media to make their feelings known:
