West Ham star Michail Antonio says the poor start to the season is not just down to the team’s defence.
The Hammers have been knocked out of the Europa League and lost their last two Premier League games 4-2 which has led to alarm bells ringing amongst fans.
Antonio, one player who has excelled so far this season, says you cannot just blame the defence for what has happened so far in this current campaign and there should be a collective responsibility.
“It’s the Premier League – if you make mistakes you will get punished,” he told the club’s official website.
“Defensively we’re not doing it, going forward we are – but you can’t just blame defenders as we have to do it as a team.”
