West Ham United Football Club are top of the Premier League

Antonio breaks West Ham record in dominant win over Leicester. An exhilarating, record-breaking performance from Michail Antonio inspired West Ham to a thumping 4-1 win over 10-man Leicester City at London Stadium.

Antonio celebrated by lifting a cardboard cut-out of himself after scoring his 48th top-flight goal to break Paolo di Canio's club record.

The 31-year-old added a second four minutes later to wrap up an impressive win for David Moyes' side.

It is only the second time the Hammers have won their opening two fixtures of a Premier League campaign.

Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma scored West Ham's first two goals either side of Ayoze Perez's dismissal for a stamp on goalscorer Fornals.

Youri Tielemans had briefly given the visitors hope at 2-1 before Antonio's late double.

Only Manchester City and Manchester United won more points away from home than Leicester in the Premier League last season, but the Foxes were outplayed in their first game on the road in the new campaign.
