West Ham United won 2-1 against Southampton in the Premier League on Monday evening.

West Ham United winger Michail Antonio has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his delight at scoring for his side on Monday evening.

The former Nottingham Forest man was the star of the show at the Boleyn Ground, as the Hammers got the better of Southampton 2-1 in the Premier League.

An own goal from Arsenal-owned defender Carl Jenkinson saw the Saints go ahead after just 13 minutes, but second-half goals from Antonio and Andy Carroll helped West Ham register their first league victory in two months.

Antonio’s goal against Southampton was his first for Slaven Bilic’s side in the Premier League since joining the London outfit from Championship side Forest in the summer transfer window.

Over the course of the 90 minutes at the Boleyn Ground, the 25-year-old winger took three shots, had a pass accuracy of 64%, put in one cross, attempted six dribbles, and made three interceptions and three blocks.

The former Sheffield Wednesday star has taken to Twitter to bask in the glory, with Carroll hailing his performance.

West Ham are seventh in the Premier League table at the moment with 29 points from 19 matches, six points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, who have a game in hand.
