West Ham fans blown away by performance of Michail Antonio

West Ham gave their survival bid a much-needed injection of life last night, winning 3-2 against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Tomas Soucek saw a goal ruled out for offside early on and then endured the pain of Willian firing Chelsea in front.

Czech international Soucek wouldn’t be denied a second time around, however, ensuring the Hammers were level at the interval.

The second half was arguably West Ham’s best performance under David Moyes and they never really looked in danger.

Michail Antonio put them in front before Willian again restored parity after 72 minutes.

West Ham would have probably taken a point prior to kick-off but they were to claim all three in the end.

With Chelsea pushing for a winner, the Hammers caught the Blues on the break. Andriy Yarmalenko putting his injury problems behind him and firing an unstoppable effort into the corner of the net.

One man stole the show for the Hammers, however, and that was the £70,000-a-week Antonio.

His tireless running and trickery gave the Chelsea defenders nightmares and he looks to be an integral part of Moyes’ team.

Following the game, West Ham fans took to Twitter to show their appreciation for the 30-year-old.

Here is a selection of tweets from supporters on the ex-Nottingham Forest player’s performance.
