West Ham’s four-game unbeaten run came to an end at Brighton on Friday night.

Chris Hughton’s side claimed all three points against West Ham, as they did twice last season.

It was a disappointing evening for the Hammers, who were defeated by a Glenn Murray first-half goal.

And after the game, several players came in for some major criticism.

But none more so than Michail Antonio. The 28-year-old came off the bench but couldn’t inspire West Ham to score.

West Ham fans were critical of Antonio’s work rate and end product.

Once regarded as one of West Ham’s best players, the powerful winger has not been the same since returning from injury.

Manuel Pellegrini often uses him as an impact substitution but he was unable to unlock Brighton’s sturdy defence on Friday evening.

Here are some comments from West Ham fans after Antonio’s display at Brighton.
