Speaking after the game, Antonio told Match of the Day: "I was never in doubt.

"When it opened up for me one vs one, with all the goal to aim for, I'd always back myself to score, especially with the form I am in.

"Six goals in six, let's keep going and let's keep scoring.

"Definitely [I like seeing my name top of the scoring charts], hopefully it can be there at the end of the season."
