Michail Antonio becomes the first player to score against Tottenham Hotspur at their new ground

Michail Antonio made history on Saturday afternoon as he became the first player to score a goal against Tottenham Hotspur at their new stadium.

The West Ham United winger controlled a perfectly weighted pass from Marko Arnautovic on his chest to slam home past Hugo Lloris.

Prior to the London derby at the new ground, Spurs had not conceded a single goal in their first four games.

However, Mauricio Pochettino’s men were powerless to stop the 29-year-old from firing the ball home.

Spurs dominated the opening exchanges of the game, with Lukasz Fabianski forced into a couple of smart saves.

But the Hammers were deserving of their lead at the new stadium.

The winger showed control and poise to finish

With Mark Noble dictating the game from midfield, the East Enders looked comfortable throughout the game and were the more threatening.

Antonio could have had a second goal with ten minutes remaining, but Lloris stood tall to stop his goalbound effort.

With a Champions League semi-final against Ajax to play in midweek, Pochettino will be hoping this was a rare blip for his side.
