David Moyes was delighted to see Michail Antonio pull off an impressive performance which led West Ham to a 1-0 victory in the clash against Burnley.

Michail Antoni

, who just recovered from a hamstring injury, met the back of the net for the fourth time this season.

David Moyes

,

West Ham

manager, said: “

Michy was very good for someone just coming back from injury.

“He’s shown a great level of robustness in the last six months and hopefully we can get him back up to that. If he can regain the form of those previous months that would be a big thing.”

Hammers’ boss plans to recruit a striker this month after selling Sebastien Haller £20million to Ajax.

He added: “

We’ve already made enquiries for players at clubs, it’s not as if we’re not trying, but I need players who can make a difference. If not, I’ll use the young players or find someone else in the squad.”

Antonio scored a goal early door, leaving

Burnley

pushing for an equalizer the rest of the game.

It’s a tough one to call

,” said manager

Sean Dyche

. “

We conceded a softer goal than usual for us but I’m not going to criticise my centre-halves, I thought they were excellent today.

“They didn’t really have too many other chances, until near the end. It’s just about finding the detail in the final third.

“It’s rare in the Premier League to go away from home and have as much possession as we did.

“There were a lot of good things but we’ve come away with nothing. West Ham defended very well today so credit to them for seeing the game through for a clean sheet.

“There’s a lot of things right about the team at the moment but we’ve got to find the margins. We’re close but we’ve got to make sure we do it rather than waiting for it to happen.

“After eight games we had two points. So, we’ve been effective. But we need to get more effective.
