Michail Antonio still tops Championship dribbling stats, despite West Ham United move

West Ham Championship

Michail Antonio completed a move to West Ham United from Nottingham Forest on deadline day.

Michail Antonio may have left Nottingham Forest for West Ham United on deadline day, but the winger remains the most prolific dribbler in the Championship this season. 

Antonio's rivals in the second tier have had four matches to catch him, since he moved to the Hammers, but none have been able to even get close to the total he set over the first four games of the campaign.

Antonio made 19 successful dribbles in his first four appearances this term, as he ripped apart defences whilst playing for Forest.

That total has still not been matched, with Sone Aluke of Hull City his closest challenger after completing 15 dribbles this term.

Sone Aluko Hull City 15 8 415
Carl Baker MK Dons 15 8 428
Kazenga Lua Lua Brighton 15 7 613
Tony Watt Charlton 15 6 468

It shows the class that West Ham have recruited by snapping up Antonio, as he has left everybody else trailing in his wake in the second tier.

Antonio is yet to make a start for Slaven Bilic's side since moving to Upton Park, but he has made two appearances off the substitutes' bench. 

The 25-year-old's next chance to make an impression will come this weekend, when the Hammers take on Norwich City.
