There may be no fans at games to cheer on West Ham United’s players right now but David Martin took up the mantle to serenade Michail Antonio.
West Ham went into Saturday’s game at Norwich knowing it was a must win.
And Antonio stepped up to the plate by becoming the first West Ham player to score four goals in a Premier League game.
West Ham’s man of the moment Antonio
Third choice goalkeeper Martin may not be involved much these days after the return of Darren Randolph.
But the boyhood Hammer showed how much he cares about the club by willing his West Ham teammates on behind the scenes.
Martin filmed himself singing the Antonio song to the man himself as he returned to the changing rooms following the 4-0 victory.
It got a giggle from Antonio as he carried his match ball under his arm.
And West Ham fans loved it too.

Martin posted the video of him singing to Antonio along with the message applauding his teammate simply saying: “This guy.”

The big question now is can West Ham go again when Watford visit the London Stadium on Friday night.
Victories for Aston Villa, Bournemouth and Watford mean West Ham are still very much in the relegation mire.
The winner of the six-pointer between West Ham and Watford will go a long way to securing safety.
Another six-pointer looms for West Ham
Before then Bournemouth take on Manchester City on Wednesday while Villa go to out of form Everton on Thursday.
And of course the spectre of that final day showdown with Villa is looming large on the horizon too.
Although defeat for Villa and Bournemouth at Everton and City – coupled with victory for West Ham over Watford – will make the Hammers safe with two games to spare given their superior goal difference.
