Twitter Reacts: West Ham United 4-1 Leicester City
It was a special night in east London.
60,000 Hammers returned to London Stadium for Monday night's visit of Leicester City and were given a real treat.
West Ham United were in rampant form to sweep to the 4-1 victory that sent them to the top of the Premier League table.
Here's some of the best reaction from Twitter...
Michail Antonio's two goals made him the sole holder of the Club's all-time Premier League goalscoring record, and the Claret & Blue Army were united in praise for him...

This pretty much summed up the feeling around the game...
That’s the West Ham we know and love. An entertaining, high intensity, spirited group that want to play for the shirt. David Moyes is slowly building very special things at this football club.— Dan Woffenden (@danwoff98) August 23, 2021
These former Hammers are loving life...
And the players were thrilled to be able to perform in front of the passionate Claret & Blue Army once again...
