Antonio finds West Ham positives in Arsenal defeat

West Ham United attacker Michail Antonio insists there's positives to draw from defeat to Arsenal.

Despite the setback, Antonio believes that, should the Irons repeat the standard of their showing in their nine remaining league games, they will prove more than capable of securing their Premier League status.

“I feel that we played very well today and had some good opportunities that we didn't take," West Ham's No30 explained.

“We took our chances against Liverpool and our chances against Southampton, but today [Saturday] we didn't take them, and we got punished for it.

“Obviously, we brought the performances we gave against Liverpool and Southampton into this week, but we just didn't take opportunities when we had them.

“With the games that are coming up, and the performances that we've been giving, if we keep doing what we're doing, we'll easily finish in the Premier League."
