Striker Michail Antonio scored twice on his return from injury to fire West Ham United to a 2-1 win at Burnley on Monday which lifted them up to fifth place in the Premier League and kept alive their hopes of Champions League football next season.

Chris Wood gave Burnley the lead in the 19th minute but it was short-lived as Antonio split a pair of defenders to score with a bullet header in the 21st minute.

With West Ham pouring forward, Antonio added what proved to be the winner eight minutes later.

The victory lifted the Hammers to fifth place with 58 points from 34 games.
