Reports have emerged claiming that West Ham winger Michail Antonio hailed teammate Andy Carroll after their 3-3 draw with Arsenal.
Carroll struck all three of the Hammers’ goals.
“Andy was outstanding, as you could see,” said Antonio to whufc.com.
“You don’t get a hat-trick without performing well and he did what we know he can do.
“When you hang it up to the back post, there is no-one who can hold him and no-one who can stop him.
“At the start, we were playing with the ball too much and not really getting it out wide and getting crosses in the box, and you know if you’re not getting crosses in the box, it’s not going to help Andy’s game. We started sticking it in and he started putting it in the back of the net.”
