Goals: Burnley 1-2 West Ham United


Michail Antonio made a triumphant return to the West Ham United team at Burnley on Monday night, scoring twice in the first half to give his side a vital 2-1 victory.

The Hammers were bright throughout, but trailed early on to Chris Wood’s penalty and had to show admirable resilience to fight back almost instantly.

Antonio got on the end of crosses from Vladimír Coufal and Saïd Benrahma to turn the game around and give the Hammers the platform their play deserved.

The No30’s personal quest for a hat-trick was thwarted only by a number of near misses as West Ham looked to make the contest safe, and although they ultimately would not be able to add a third, his early brace proved enough to separate the sides.
