On This Day: Record-breaker Antonio grounds Canaries

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

Michail Antonio made West Ham United history at Norwich City on this day in 2020.

The centre-forward hit all four goals as the Hammers grounded the Canaries with a superb performance at Carrow Road, becoming the first West Ham player to do so in a Premier League game.

Antonio opened his account by volleying in Issa Diop's flick-on on eleven minutes before doubling his tally with a header from Mark Noble's free-kick on the stroke of half-time.

It was three for Antonio and three for West Ham when the forward headed in after Tim Krul had saved his initial shot on 54 minutes, and history was made when he converted Ryan Fredericks' low cross 16 minutes from full-time.

The only downside was that the Claret and Blue Army were not at Carrow Road to celebrate as the ongoing COVID pandemic meant supporters were not present at Premier League matches.

Antonio's quadruple strike was part of a sensational July for the striker, who plundered eight goals in seven appearances on his way to being named Premier League Player of the Month.

West Ham's win at Norwich also gave David Moyes' side a huge boost in their quest for Premier League survival, keeping the Irons three points clear of the bottom three with three games to play. The result also relegated the Norfolk side.

A home win over Watford and draws with Manchester United and Aston Villa would ultimately see the east Londoners finish 16th with 39 points, with Antonio's form playing a central role in their strong end to the season.
