Michail Antonio is having an absolutely fantastic season at West Ham. He’s scored an incredible 8 goals for the Hammers from the right hand side of midfield, contributing more goals to their season than anyone else.
Not only that but he’s proving to be a creative force too, incredibly producing three assists in the Irons euphoric 3-0 win at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
At times he’s been the only man keeping them going and with Dimitri Payet dropping out of the team, he’s only going to be more important in the second half of the season.

Not only is he leading the way in headed goals, he’s doing it in efficient fashion. Every header he’s had on target has ended up in the back of the net.
6 – Michail Antonio has mustered just six headers on target in the Premier League this season and scored with all of them. Complete.

It’s clear the English winger is enjoying getting one over on his opposition defenders and West Ham fans will be hoping that continues at the weekend when the Hammers visit Middlesbrough in Premier League action.
