Michail Antonio believes West Ham United have the required quality to bounce back immediately from their 2-0 Premier League defeat against Everton on Sunday.

Goals from Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley were the difference at Goodison Park as the Hammers’ run of four games in a row without defeat came to an abrupt halt.

West Ham lacked quality in attack, particularly in the second half, but Antonio insists they will be targeting all three points when Stoke visit London Stadium on Saturday.

“We have to pick ourselves up because we were unbeaten in four games and we know we can do it again,” he told the club website.

“We want another win next weekend against Stoke at London Stadium.”

West Ham started the match brightly and were in the ascendency in the opening exchanges.

They failed to make the most of their early supremacy though and a strong second half showing from Everton gave them a deserved win.

Antonio accepted United’s performance levels dipped somewhat, but still praised what he believed to be a strong all round performance.

“At the beginning of the game I thought we dominated the game in the opening 25 minutes,” he said.

“We were getting good balls into the box but we didn’t manage to convert them. After that the game went more 50/50 and I thought their first goal was a bit lucky.

“We could sense it was not going to be our day. Things were not coming off for us but we still put in a good performance and kept fighting until the end.”

Antonio once again took up the unfamiliar role up front which he played in the EFL Cup win over Chelsea and endured a frustrating afternoon.

The 26-year-old almost added to his five goals this season in the second half and said his misfortune with the chance mirrored his team’s general shortage of luck.

He said: “I had a great chance and was looking up to see if anyone else was around but I couldn’t see anyone and tried to curl the ball around the keeper.

“On another day I would have scored with that opportunity but it didn’t happen for me today.”
