West Ham winger Michail Antonio finds positives from Arsenal defeat

West Ham winger Michail Antonio insists they can build on their performance in defeat to Arsenal.

With Wolverhampton Wanderers scheduled to visit London Stadium on Sunday evening, Antonio is determined to hit the net again and secure the Irons' first points of the 2020/21 season in the process.

“We're definitely very disappointed," he told Premier League Productions. “Saturday was a good opportunity for us to get some points on the board, but it's just one of those things and part and parcel of football, really, that if you don't take your chances, you get punished.

“It was a great team effort and it showed the quality we have got in the squad, and hopefully we can take the confidence from all the good stuff we did on Saturday into next week.

“Hopefully, we can build on the performance we did on Saturday. We had 14 chances and, on another day, we could have scored two or three more goals and won."
