On This Day: Michail Antonio scores historic goal at London Stadium

 

Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with RoadX Tyres...

Michail Antonio made history by scoring West Ham United's first Premier League goal at London Stadium on this day in 2016.

The No30 rose at the far post to head home Gokhan Tore's cross five minutes from the end to score the only goal of the game and secure a landmark victory over AFC Bournemouth exactly four years ago.

A Club-record 56,977 supporters were in attendance as West Ham played their first league match at their new home, having left Upton Park at the end of last season.

Manager Slaven Bilic was pleased to mark the occasion with three valuable Premier League points, saying: "It was difficult, we knew it would be. The guys did brilliantly. Bournemouth were better than us in the first 15 minutes of the second half but they didn't hurt us.

"We just deserved it. We were pushing and wanted it more. We're delighted to end the first game at this beautiful stadium with a win and a clean sheet."
