Antonio - We have the belief to beat anyone

Michail Antonio admits his side have the belief to beat any team in the country

West Ham United winger Michail Antonio admits his side have the belief to beat any team in the country and was disappointed they could only take a point from the Manchester City game.

Having recorded a memorable double over Liverpool and securing big wins over Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City, the Hammers winger says they were confident of coming away with another famous victory.

The signs looked even better after Enner Valencia had fired the Hammers back into the lead at the start of the second half and Antonio was confident they would go on and secure all three points.

But Sergio Aguero stole the headlines once again with a late equaliser and the players had to settle for a draw.

With the club still in the top six and a big Emirates FA Cup tie against Liverpool on Saturday, Antonio says they are confident of enjoying a successful end to the campaign.

Antonio said: “We are definitely heading in the right direction. It says a lot when we are disappointed to have only come away with a point against Manchester City.

“We have got that belief that we can beat the top teams. We are just taking it game by game and trying to play well in every game that we play to help us come away with the three points.

“We are quite disappointed that we could not come away with three points as we had enough opportunities to win the game.

“They didn't have many chances and obviously had a penalty for the first goal and a scrappy for the second, so we feel it is two points dropped.

“It was one of those days where it started a bit hectic. We scored an early goal and then they scored a penalty.

“The game evened out a bit and then we managed to get a second. I thought we were going to hold out and then they got a ricochet goal which is disappointing but we have to move on.”
