Loads of West Ham fans have been giving their verdict on the opening day defeat at Liverpool, and they’re really not happy with Michail Antonio.
West Ham travelled to Liverpool on Sunday knowing any result would be a huge boost to start the season.
The match went pretty much as expected though, as Jürgen Klopp’s reds simply overpowered the Hammers, romping to a 4-0 win courtesy of goals from Mohamed Salah, Daniel Sturridge and a brace from Sadio Mane.
Quite a few of Pellegrini’s players underperformed, but fans are particularly annoyed with the 28 year-old Antonio, especially for his lack of defensive work.
Both of Liverpool’s first half goals came from crosses from Liverpool’s left, where the winger left new signing Ryan Fredericks completely isolated time and time again.
Andriy Yarmolenko was deemed not fit enough to start this one, but it seems inevitable that he will replace Anotnio next week after the lacklustre performance.

Yarmolenko already looks 128472828x better than Antonio. Not that it’s hard.
