The 31-year-old Hammers ace is such a key member of David Moyes’s side at the London Stadium.

He recently signed a new £100k-a-week contract with the East London outfit according to The Mirror (November 15th, page 74). And he is worth every penny of that salary.

His pace and power provides West Ham with something that they do not otherwise possess.

It is so important that Antonio remains fit this season. Whether Moyes manages to sign a new striker or not, the powerful front-man will remain a focal point of the Hammers’ play through the middle.

Antonio has begun this season in fine form.

 

He looks fitter and stronger than he ever has done before. The 31-year-old is a defender’s worst nightmare.

As mentioned earlier, however, maintaining his fitness will be the key for him and the Hammers this season.

West Ham fans absolutely rave about Michail Antonio

Aside from his goals, his all-round play is incredibly important to the way in which West Ham build their attacks.

He showed that in abundance tonight.
