Michail Antonio propels Westham to top of Premier league table

Published

During yesterday’s Monday night football, Michael Antonio’s brace stamped their stunning 4-1 victory over Leicester City at the London Stadium.

Westham opened the scoring through Pablo Fornals and minutes later the hammers added a second through their ever attacking midfielder Said Benrahama. Leicester suffered a setback after Ayoze Perez was shown a straight red card by the referee, Michael Oliver after a VAR review of his dangerous challenge on Pablo Fornals.

Leicester pulled one back through Tielemans but ten minutes later Antonio struck his second, to propel Westham to a stunning victory over the current holder of the community shield.

The brace meant that Antonio is the new Hammer’s all-time premier league goalscorer, breaking the record held by Paolo Di Canio.  Antonio now has 49 premier league goals for Westham.

“I did not think he had made the right choices with the ball in the first half a few times, but he was a different class after half-time, with his link-up play and positioning. His goals are typical Mich and he can score so many more,” Westham manager Moyes said on Antonio’s performance.

Westham leads the table by goals scored after two rounds of matches of the 2021/22 season that kicked of two weeks ago.  Westham will host Crystal Palace on Saturday while Leicester will travel to Norwich, who are yet to score a goal in the premier league after back-to-back defeats by Liverpool and Manchester City.

4 things we need to normalise before the end of 2021!

Published

A lot has been said about some of these things but it is time we shed them off. Most of these things are not cast on stones but are deeply rooted in us.  Let us work towards normalising them.

1. Clubbing in sneakers for ladies

After a tough week of hustling, adulting, and paying bills, the weekend is here and you need to loosen up, go clubbing, and have fun. Question is, does it always have to be in heels? You probably already use your heels during workdays. Ditch them and go for something comfier.

2. Male grooming

For the longest time, we have been uptight when we see men getting serious about their grooming. It is about time we do away with the labeling of well-groomed men.

And for the men, getting a pedicure and using face masks does not make you any less of a man.

3. Calling out rogue service providers

It is about time we put an end to staying quiet whenever any service provider treats us awfully. Routine is simple- let them know you don’t like how they are treating you and if need be, contact the customer care office.

4. Commercialising our passions

We don’t really need white-collar jobs to get things going. With the current unemployment situation in the country, the least you can do is find something to put food on your table. Commercialise that passion.

He also defended his decision to open social media accounts for the newborn saying that every ambassador needs a social media platform and that even if he didn’t open the account other people could have created fake pages in her name.

Mulamwah said, “Even if we don’t open, people will use her names to open fake accounts. I will not give trolls a chance to write negative comments on her page. I will specifically open pages for her future benefits. I earn through social media and so, I don’t mind creating a platform for her as early as this.”

Keilah Oyando social media accounts have attracted a huge fan base in less than 24hours since they were opened with over 8,000 followers on Instagram and over 15,000 likes on Facebook.
