West Ham boss David Moyes sets star striker Michail Antonio a target of TWENTY Premier League goals this season as Hammers look to continue impressive start at home to Brentford

David Moyes has challenged star striker Michail Antonio to become the first West Ham player to hit 20 top-flight goals in a season for 35 years.

In-form Antonio has begun the new campaign in red-hot fashion, netting five times in as many Premier League appearances following last weekend's dramatic winner at Leeds.

Tony Cottee was the last Hammers player to reach the milestone - scoring 22 times in the old Division One in 1986-87 - while Paolo Di Canio's 16 strikes in the 1999-00 campaign is the club's highest individual haul of the Premier League era.
