David Moyes warned his players their survival mission is not yet complete after four-goal Michail Antonio fired them to the brink of safety.

Moyes said: ‘We are in a position where we have our noses in front and we have to make sure we do our job to remain a Premier League team.’

Antonio’s haul, which included his first career hattrick, made him the first West Ham player to score four times in a Premier League.

He has deputised brilliantly for West Ham as a stand-in striker, scoring six times in his last four games.

Moyes said: ‘He’s been excellent. Today was a good day for him. Not many people score four goals in a Premier League match.’
