​West Ham winger Antonio hoping to electrify London Stadium

Michail Antonio has revealed that he is looking to deliver a sterling performance and possibly score a goal as West Ham prepare to face off against Burnley in a Premier League clash on Saturday.

Despite being a key player for the Hammers, Antonio has not netted at the London Stadium since he netted two headers against Watford in September 2016.

He is keen to end his 24-match run without a goal at the London Stadium when his side takes on the Clarets on Saturday and in the process, provide David Moyes's charges with a much-needed three points.

"I haven't scored at home since September 2016? Wow!" claimed Antonio.

"I thought I was a 'home scorer' and scored most of my goals at home, but clearly that hasn't been the case for quite a while.

"I'm on a little run now, though, and hopefully I can continue that by scoring at London Stadium on against Burnley on Saturday.

"I scored three at home at the start of last season, so it's weird to hear that it's been 18 months since I scored there. It's crazy, in fact, but this Saturday that curse will be broken!"
