The 25-year-old restored the Seagulls' lead with a stunning finesse shot from range as they ran out 3-1 winners over David Moyes' outfit on Saturday. The Hammers didn't heed the warning after Izquierdo netted - again in spectacular fashion - in the reverse fixture in October.
The ex-Brugge forward was jubilant at scoring his third for the club and took off celebrating and swinging his shirt "like Forrest Gump."
He claimed (quotes via Brighton & Hove Independent): "I enjoyed it. It was a massive celebration, I let out the feelings in that moment... I ran more in the celebration than I did in the game."
When questioned on whether his sensational effort was a cross Izquierdo insisted: "I swear not. I received the ball and the only thing was to shoot. The first Premier League goal was very nice, but this goal in the moment I scored was special."
With Chris Hughton's side precariously placed just three points above the relegation zone Izquierdo is looking to become a reliable talisman in the bid for top flight survival: "We need the points and each game will be like a final. We will see what happens now in the next week."
He added:"It’s not the first time I have scored a goal like this. You should see my goals, they are always outside of the box... The quality of it sees me get more confidence. I know I can do it."
