On Saturday West Ham defeated Brighton with a commanding score of 3-1, propelling themselves to the top of the Premier League table.
One of the standout performers of the day was none other than the Jamaican sensation, Michail Antonio, whose remarkable contributions played a pivotal role in the Hammers’ victory.
The game kicked off with James Ward-Prowse, recently acquired from Southampton, breaking the deadlock in the 19th minute.
The goal was a result of Antonio’s incredible display of strength and skill down the wing. Outmuscling Brighton defender Adam Webster, Antonio perfectly set up Ward-Prowse to calmly tap in from close range, marking the English midfielder’s first goal for West Ham.
As the match progressed, it was clear that Antonio was in top form. His dynamic presence and relentless efforts kept Brighton’s defense on their toes.
The Jamaican international’s influence was highlighted once again in the second half, as he expertly controlled Said Benrahma’s cross, setting up Jarrod Bowen for a precise finish into the bottom corner, doubling West Ham’s lead.
Despite maintaining possession dominance, Brighton found it challenging to contain the explosive playing style of Michail Antonio.
And the Jamaican’s efforts were rewarded in the 63rd minute when he unleashed a powerful shot that found the back of the net, sending the traveling West Ham fans into euphoria.
Brighton managed to pull one back with nine minutes remaining, as German midfielder Pascal Gross navigated through a crowded penalty area to score.
Antonio’s excellent form is marked his second consecutive goal in as many games. He had also scored in the previous match against Chelsea, helping West Ham secure a 3-1 victory last Sunday.
