​Antonio has no issues with atmosphere at West Ham's new stadium

Michail Antonio has defended the atmosphere generated by West Ham's fans at their new London Stadium.

Concerns have been raised in regards to the atmosphere at the east Londoners' new base after the club's 1-0 victory over Bournemouth at the weekend.

"There were so many gaps at the Boleyn Ground. But here the archways come over the stands and brings it onto the pitch," he told Bleacher Report.

"Especially when I scored - the roar was outrageous.

"It's a new ground, it's a new feel - we're trying to turn it into a fortress.

"Every game we've played competitively here we've won so it looks like we can do it," he added.
