Michail Antonio has just made a ludicrous prediction about West Ham United and Liverpool.
The Hammers have made a strong start to the 2023/24 season, having taken 10 points from our opening five games.
David Moyes‘ men currently sit three points behind Liverpool in the table and we all know just how hard it will be for us to get a positive result at Anfield on Sunday.
However, Antonio might have just made it even harder for us…
Michail Antonio has just made a quite frankly ridiculous prediction about West Ham
The Jamaica international has been speaking about the Hammers and Liverpool.
Antonio amazingly suggested that he’s backing West Ham to finish above the Reds in the Premier League table this season:
“I am backing myself over Liverpool. You know what, I think we are going to finish higher than Liverpool this season. I’m putting it out there. I watched the game [Wolves vs Liverpool] because it was before our game and Wolves could have run away with it. They had quite a few opportunities. We’ve got them this weekend and it’s a six-pointer.”
Sure, Antonio was speaking slightly tongue in cheek. But he still shouldn’t be saying things like that as far as I’m concerned.
Will those comments from the 33-year-old not just fire Liverpool up even more ahead of our game this weekend?
I’m pretty sure that Moyes and Antonio’s teammates will not be happy one little bit with what he’s said there, and neither will the fans.
Michail Antonio has to stop coming out with stupid comments on his podcast – he is definitely having an adverse effect on West Ham in my opinion.
