Nobody at West Ham has been faultless for the Hammers’ mixed form this season, but a number of individuals have clearly been trying their best to improve things.
Michail Antonio, for all of his failings, is one player that can’t really be faulted, at least as far as his effort is concerned. Sure, he hasn’t been able to hit the height of previous seasons over the last year or so, but you can never doubt the energy that he provides in every game that he plays.
That was particularly evident on Monday evening against Liverpool. Not only did Antonio score, but the versatile winger didn’t stop running for the entire game, and in the end, he got his rewards.
He’s able to have a tremendous impact both defensively and going forward, and whilst he might mistime tackles or miss easy chances, that’s more than can be said for many of his teammates.
Unsurprisingly, following our good result against Liverpool, lots of Hammers have been hailing their hero, and many have praised him for his continual effort. See below:
If only every game was played with the same desire & application from the players .
Your’s has been spot on for a while & I’m happy to see your performances warrant praise for effort & commitment.
I know the best performance can’t be in every game but the effort should be.
