Michail Antonio has fired West Ham to the top of the Premier League with his 48th and 49th goal for the club.
He scored twice against Leicester City on Monday in a 4-1 victory at the London stadium.
Antonio’s late goals took him two goals ahead of Paolo Di Canio.
He tied Canio’s record 15 August.
In reaction to the Leicester win, Antonio kissed a life-size cardboard cut-out of himself.
Then, he crazily lifted it above his head.
“It sounds beautiful to be called West Ham’s top Premier League scorer.
“I feel like first-half it affected how I was playing but the gaffer caned me at half-time and I played normally and managed to get my goals, ” he said.
