Michail Antonio fired West Ham to a memorable away win at Norwich City today with a magnificent four goal display. And Glenn Hoddle raved about the 30-year-old Hammers star’s performance.

David Moyes and the West Ham fans would have been desperate for all three points today. And that was exactly what they got.
The Hammers dominated from the very first whistle up until the last.
Every single West Ham player put in brilliant performances. But it was Antonio who stole the show.
The former Nottingham Forest ace is one of the most popular, hard-working players at the London Stadium. He has fully established himself as one of the Hammers’ most important players.

And he proved once again today exactly what he has to offer.
Antonio’s pace and power is matched by nobody else in the West Ham team. The West Ham star was completely unplayable today, and he caused Norwich all sorts of problems all game.
Glenn Hoddle described the 30-year-old forward as different class, when speaking during BT Sport’s broadcast of today’s match (Saturday July 11th, 14:21):
‘Antonio has been different class today he really has. Everything he has done. He has been one of their better players recently. He’s been outstanding today.”
The 30-year-old will be vitally important for West Ham over the next few games. And the next few years. He has proven that he is capable of stringing more than two or three games together since the restart.
A fully fit and firing Antonio is truly a sight to behold. And with his contract set to expire next summer, the Hammers board surely need to offer him a new two or three year deal.
It will be vital for them to keep the pacy front-man in east London for the long-term.
