West Ham United fans have found one positive in Saturday's dismal 4-1 defeat at Swansea City.
And that positive comes in the form of Michail Antonio, who climbed off the bench to pull one back for the Irons in South Wales but it was too little too late.
David Moyes elected against starting the former Nottingham Forest winger, but Antonio, a £7 million (Sky Sports) signing under Slaven Bilic during the 2015-16 campaign, reminded the Scottish manager of his qualities after coming on for the second half.
And fans of the East London club are adamant that he should start next week's visit of Burnley.

The only shining light of this is Antonio. Hasn't given up at all. He is a must starter every. Moyes needs to stop dropping him #WHUFC— Robbie Lawther (@RLawther94) March 3, 2018

Despite our inability to defend & lack of effort, we do have good players and Antonio's goal was quality! I still hold much hope for West Ham to be safely Prem next season ⚒️ #COYI #WHUFC
Losing at Swansea meant that West Ham missed the chance to move six points clear of the relegation zone, and a Crystal Palace win at home to Manchester United on Monday night would drag Moyes's side right back into the thick of things.
Palace, if they win, would go level on points with the Hammers, who would then only be two points clear of the drop zone.
These are uncertain times for West Ham, but if their entire team shows as much quality and spirit as Antonio did in the second half then they should be okay.
