West Ham fans have got a lot of top players they can rely upon when they need to win games and score goals, and one of those is the charismatic Michail Antonio. However, the winger has been out injured for a while, and the fans have just been given the good news that he’s going to back after the international break.

The Irons have long loved Antonio. The 29-year-old, last season, became the first man to score the winning goal for an away side at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and the next game that the Hammers go into is against the Lilywhites, meaning that Antonio could be set to deliver more heroics.
Having him back and ready as soon as possible will be absolutely key, and not just for the one game against Tottenham. The experienced West Ham man has got 28 goals and 18 assists in his career so far for the Irons (Transfermarkt), and now it’s about adding to those stats after the internationals.
Should Antonio be handed a new contract?

The Hammers love that Antonio will soon be back, and will be banking on him to help them overcome Spurs once again.
