By Dominic Toner

West Ham supporters have backed Michail Antonio on Twitter to continue his good form on Saturday.

The Hammers meet West Brom at the Hawthorns in the Premier League and are in need of a decent result.

The Londoners have made a disappointing start to the season but the ex-Nottingham Forest man has been a bright light, scoring four goals in eight appearances.

Slaven Bilic’s side have earned just three points from their opening four league matches, losing matched against Chelsea, Manchester City and Watford, and sit just a point above the relegation zone.

The West Ham fans believe that the 26-year-old will continue his recent goal scoring form and help them gain three points.

Antonio has continued his impressive form from last season, when he scored 13 goals in 36 league and cup encounters.

He earned his first international call up to England’s squad against Slovakia but was an unused substitute in a 1-0 victory.

Bilic used Antonio as a full-back for parts of last season in the absence of the injured Sam Byram but has now pushed him up the pitch as a winger.

Antonio has enjoyed great success in the air this season and scored two headed goals against Watford.
