Michail Antonio's two late goals in West Ham United's 4-1 win over Leicester City has fired him into the record books and the Hammers to the top of the Premier League.
Antonio's quickfire double wrapped up a resounding victory over the 10-man Foxes at a raucous London Stadium.
His first saw him overtake Paolo Di Canio as West Ham's top Premier League goalscorer, and he celebrated in hilarious fashion by kissing a life-size cardboard cut-out of himself.
Moments later he took his league tally to 49 as West Ham maintained their flying start to the season.
"Last year I was disappointed with 10 goals - I was looking for 15. I have three now already this season so I am looking to beat that - maybe even get 20," Antonio told Sky Sports after the match.
"It was a big decision for me actually to take the number nine shirt this season, as I'd been number 30 for a long time.
"But I felt like taking it and owning it and being the number nine striker at West Ham."
The Hammers led through goals from Pablo Fornals and Said Benrahma, either side of a 40th-minute red card for Leicester's Ayoze Perez.
Youri Tielemans hauled one back for the 10 men but Antonio stole the show with his late heroics.
Some 60,000 fans were in the London Stadium for the first time since February 2020, the vast majority of whom had not seen David Moyes' well-drilled, exciting side who finished an improbable sixth last season, in the flesh.
Fornals fired the hosts ahead in the 26th minute as he started and finished a flowing move by steering Benrahma's low cross into the net.
Perez was sent off for stamping on Fornals as they tussled for the ball.
West Ham continued to dominate and Benrahma doubled their advantage in the 56th with a simple finish into an unguarded net.
Tielemans pulled a goal back for Leicester in the 69th minute when he bundled the ball home at the far post.
But Antonio settled any nerves with his milestone strike, firing past Schmeichel before embarking on his latest madcap celebration.
The unloved London stadium has struggled for atmosphere over the past five years, but the goal was met with possibly the loudest roar heard at the venue since the 2012 Olympics.
Antonio rounded off a thumping win when he flicked the ball above two Leicester defenders and beat Kasper Schmeichel to the ball before stabbing home.
