‘Bullied’ – Alan Shearer names ‘outstanding’ West Ham player in Team of the Week

The signing of In the victory, James Ward-Prowse scored his first goal for West Ham, while Jarrod Bowen also scored.

The Hammers, who are unblemished through their first three games of the new season, were defeated by the hosts thanks to a late goal from Pascal Gross.

Following his performance, Shearer included Antonio in his Team of the Week, noting on the official Premier League website on August 28: “Bullied Brighton’s defense all match and scored another outstanding goal.”

Antonio’s goal, which gave his team all three points on their journey to the south coast, was truly outstanding. Following their opening-day 1-1 draw against Bournemouth, West Ham defeated Chelsea 3-1 at the London Stadium thanks to his well-taken goal against them.

The East London club now sits second in the Premier League standings with seven points after three games, trailing only Manchester City, who have won all three of their contests.
