West Ham striker Michail Antonio scored twice as West Ham beat Burnley 2-1 on Monday night.

The victory over Burnley took West Ham back to fifth and cut the gap with fourth place Chelsea to three points.

The 31-year-old played for the first time in four weeks following his recovery from a hamstring injury, equalising with a bullet header from Vladimir Coufal’s cross just two minutes after Chris Wood had put the Clarets ahead from the spot following a foul on him by Tomas Soucek.

Antonio then scored the winner for West Ham just before the half-hour mark, timing his run to perfection to guide Said Benrahma’s brilliant cross deftly into the bottom left-hand corner of Nick Pope’s net.

Antonio has warned Chelsea that West Ham will keep fighting and pushing for a top four finish following Monday’s victory over Burnley.

Speaking about the prospect of playing in the Champions League next season, Antonio told Sky Sports: “It would be unbelievable. Every boy wants to play in the Champions League.

“This is my sixth year now and there’s been so many seasons where we’re fighting at the bottom of the table trying to stay in the league.

“Now we have an opportunity with the top four to go for the Champions League and it’s a dream come true. We’re not going to give up on it, we’re going to keep fighting and keep pushing.”
