Some West Ham fans were frustrated with Michail Antonio’s cameo against Huddersfield Town.
West Ham trailed Huddersfield 1-0 and ended up salvaging a point, but many fans believed Antonio could have offered more threat in pursuit of victory.
He did pick up the assist for Felipe Anderson’s leveller. But he was wasteful in possession and this was frustrating in a game that the Hammers would have hoped for three points.
Hero to zero
Antonio was once a fans’ favourite. The ex-Nottingham Forest winger provided pace, strength, energy and full-bodied commitment at West Ham.
He had even earned himself an England call-up for his impressive performances.
But he looks like a shadow of his former self since returning from a long-term injury.
The 28-year-old has been used sparingly by Manuel Pellegrini this season with the Chilean preferring youngster Grady Diangana in the absence of Andriy Yarmolenko.
Antonio’s decline has disappointed plenty of West Ham fans, who are longing to see the player he used to be again.
Here are what some West Ham fans said about Antonio on social media after his Huddersfield display.
Michail Antonio is as infuriating a player as I have ever seen. All those injuries seem to have rendered him completely unable to make a correct decision. #WHUFC

The demise of Michail Antonio and Aaron Cresswell over the past couple of seasons is actually astonishing. Never seen anything like it before. https://t.co/4bDyVdj6MP

I would just like to make it official, I am better than Michail Antonio at football.

I am truly gutted about Antonio. Was a fan favourite and a complete winger. Lost his pace, lot his touch, can’t shoot, can’t dribble, never in the right position.
