The official account of Premier League rivals Crystal Palace has trolled West Ham and Michail Antonio after a dismal case of deja vu.
If the 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace at the weekend had not already piled the pressure on David Moyes then crashing out of the Carabao Cup to a Blackburn B side last night will have.
The manner of the last minute loss to Patrick Vieira’s side at the London Stadium was particularly galling for West Ham fans.
Because the Eagles winner was eerily identical to the scenario when West Ham drew 2-2 at the death at Selhurst Park five years ago.

On that day Michail Antonio had made it to the byline on the right hand side – like he did on Sunday. But with a host of players to pick out in the box and Palace outnumbered, he woefully clipped the ball straight to the goalkeeper on both occasions.
And on both occasions the Eagles broke and scored with almost the last kick of the game.
Now the official account of Premier League rivals Crystal Palace has trolled West Ham and Michail Antonio after the dismal deja vu.
Palace took to their official Twitter account yesterday to post videos of both moments laid on top of one another.
It makes for grim viewing and was a clear response to dual videos that had been doing the rounds prior to the game of former West Ham strikers Andy Carroll and Sebastien Haller scoring overhead kicks in previous encounters.
West Ham being trolled by Palace is a new low this season.
Vieira is doing a great job in south London, but the Eagles are clearly trying to stoke a rivalry which simply is not there.
Given the bizarre rivalry they have with Brighton perhaps we should not be too surprised.
Regardless of Antonio’s awful decision making on both occasions, though, there is no denying Palace deserved to beat West Ham at the weekend.
They were bar far the better, more progressive and attractive team to watch.
So much so anyone would think it was Vieira and not Moyes who spent £170m in the summer.
