West Ham United's Michail Antonio

West Ham United fans have stressed how much they need Michail Antonio back, after his post on Twitter.

Antonio suggested that West Ham had picked up a ‘great point’ against Aston Villa last night.

The Hammers managed to hold out with 10 men to claim a 0-0 draw at Villa Park yesterday.

However, there was a feeling that West Ham may have had a chance to take all three points if Antonio had been fit.

Antonio’s pace on the counter would have made him a major threat to Villa’s backline.

And West Ham fans are eager for the £7 million (Daily Mail) winger to make his comeback sooner rather than later.

Unfortunately for West Ham fans, Antonio is expected to be out for a considerable amount of time yet.

His absence is a blow to Manuel Pellegrini’s side, as they don’t really have a similar player to Antonio out wide available to them.

West Ham’s draw with Villa has left them sat in eighth place in the Premier League table.
