'You are a god': West Ham fans laud Aaron Cresswell for Leeds display

West Ham managed a crucial win yesterday as they scored late in the day to seal a fine comeback effort at Elland Road against Leeds United.

Michail Antonio’s late winner capped a fine second period from the Hammers, who had seem themselves get back into the game thanks to an own-goal from Leeds’ new signing, Junior Firpo.

For Antonio, it was yet another goal in what is turning into a fine season for the Jamaican international. Other key names, such as Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek also put in fine displays.
