Antonio's Redemption West Ham 1- 0 Bournemouth

It wasn't pretty, but it was a positive result! A victory at home was essential for West Ham United, and the home team, devoid of some seriously major players delivered the goods at a sun drenched London Stadium. In a way it was a match of redemption for Mikael Antonio, finally shorn of the sheckles of being a right back, he was able to be the player that all West Ham and Nottingham Forest fans know he is capable of, and topped off a turbo charged performance with a winning headed goal against a resolute Bournemouth side in the 82nd minute.
