Antonio hungry for goals

Michail Antonio says he is desperate for more goals - having acquired a taste for scoring again at Liverpool last weekend.

The England international scored West Ham's consolation goal in United's 4-1 defeat at Anfield on Saturday, moments after entering the fray as a second half substitute for Manuel Lanzini.

And Antonio - who was scoring only his second goal of the campaign - insists that he hopes to enjoy a prolific run in front of goal having shaken off a recent injury. "Everyone loves scoring, it’s one of the best things in the world," he told whufc.com

"To get back on the scoresheet has given me confidence. It was obviously a bad result for us, but hopefully now I can go on a goalscoring run. I hope I can add more goals to my tally between now and the end of the season."

And United's #30 hopes to expand his tally at the Liberty Stadium this coming weekend when the Hammers face a tricky away trip against one of the Premier League's most in-form sides.

"Swansea have beaten Liverpool and Arsenal recently, they’re going very well at the Liberty Stadium so it’s not going to be an easy task," he added. "We need to go there, be solid and rigid, start well and keep their fans quiet.

"They have been doing well but we’ve done our research and will go there aware of their strengths and weaknesses and with a gameplan from the gaffer to give us the best possible chance to win the game.

"We’ve got to go out there, execute his plans, and win the game."
