Michail Antonio’s brace earned him the right to be called the all-time leading scorer for West Ham in Premier League. In the 4-1 win against one man short Leicester City Antonio took his tally to 49 goals in the end on Monday. West Ham was already leading by one goal when Antonio’s first hit at 80th minute to make the 3-1 with that he surpassed the record of Paolo Di Canio’s 47 goal record. He then went on to score once more at the 84th minute to give the Hammers a comfortable lead and hand them the second back-to-back win.
Hammers now match the other four teams at the top with six points and is first on goals scored. The other two goals were scored by Said Benrahma and Pablo Fornals and Youri Tielemans pulled one goal for Leicester who lacked a certain edge.
