Michail Antonio: West Ham striker's superb winner proves just how good he is


Michail Antonio broke Leeds United hearts on Saturday afternoon with a superb late winner at Elland Road.

It capped a quite brilliant come from behind victory for West Ham, who continue their barnstorming start to the season.

Antonio was coolness personified as he galloped onto a sumptuous ball from Declan Rice before sending a defender for a hot dog and stroking into the bottom corner with ease.

In reality, it's a quite incredible finish, but Antonio has made it look so easy that you just don't realise that.

Antonio's stock continues to sky rocket in a season that has seen him inspire the Hammers to seventh in the league after six games.

His finish at Leeds will sit smugly alongside four other superb Premier League strikes so far this season.

However, the strike at Elland Road is a top contender to be his best so far and is easily going to be one of the goals of the weekend.

For Leeds, yet another disappointing result see them languishing in the relegation zone, with Marcelo Bielsa's side struggling to get going in their second dig in the Premier League.
