West Ham United fans have lavished praise on Michail Antonio for his contribution off the bench in Saturday’s 3-1 win over Watford in the Premier League.
Antonio was introduced in the 55th minute – when the score was level at 1-1.
The Englishman brought pace and energy to the visitors, who scored twice in the second period to secure a hugely important three points.

Antonio’s style of play, iconic celebrations and infectious personality have enabled him to establish himself as something of a hero on the London Stadium terraces, and his performance at the weekend certainly added an extra layer to his popularity.
A number of the club’s supporters on Twitter were keen to recognise his big contribution to the victory at Vicarage Road.

And it will be very interesting to see whether head coach Manuel Pellegrini finds a spot in the XI for the 29-year-old against Norwich City next weekend.

Lanzini and Antonio currently have been our most consistently good players this season.
Always create a massive impact when they play. #WHUFC
