West Ham must forget Leicester City clash, insists Michail Antonio

West Ham Upton Park

The Hammers drew 2-2 on Sunday in a highly controversial clash.

West Ham United must quickly forget the clash with Leicester City as there is still everything to play for, Michail Antonio has told the club’s official website.

The Hammers drew 2-2 with Claudio Ranieri’s side on Sunday in a highly contentious clash between the two sides.

The result was their fourth straight draw on the trot in the Premier League and the latest to involve controversial decisions going against them.

It left them seven points behind Manchester City and Arsenal in third and fourth respectively, with their hopes of a top four finish getting slimmer by the day.

Antonio though has urged his teammates to forget the game quickly as there is still everything to play for in the league and was keen to praise teammate Aaron Cresswell for his super strike in the game. 

“We have just got to look forward now and try and forget this game,” he told whufc.com.

“We have still got everything to play for. The Boleyn Ground has been a fortress for us this season and we have only lost once in the FA Cup since August so hopefully we can keep going and pushing on.

“What a strike that was from Aaron. He has hit that very well and we see him do that in training as well. It was great technique.”

Given the unpredictable nature of the Premier League this season, there is no denying that West Ham still have a chance of making it into the top four this season.

They will be boosted by the form of Arsenal, with their London rivals’ poor run of form having now put their own Champions League place under threat.

If the Hammers are to make it in though, they will need an almost perfect run between now and the end of the season, starting with Watford on Wednesday.
