David Moyes, Westham manager has suggested that Michail Antonio was “stupid” for getting sent off during stoppage time in today’s encounter with Southampton at St Mary’s.

Westham striker, Antonio had been so fantabulous right from the start of this season with four goals and three assists in just 3 games.

That qualifying the 31 year old as the Premier League’s leading goalscorer till this weekend.

However, today’s game was so tight for him that he scored no goal and eventually ended up being sent off the pitch.

Antonio received his first yellow card in the 71 minute for unsportsmanlike conduct and the second in the 95 minute for commits a rough foul on Moussa Djenepo.
