Manchester United ace Paul Pogba may be famous for his funky hairstyles by West Ham United star Michail Antonio is giving him a run for his money.

West Ham travel to Crystal Palace on Saturday afternoon looking to impress.

The Hammers take on Palace fresh from a superb performance in a 1-1 draw with league leaders Liverpool on Monday night.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side pulled off something of a shock against Jurgen Klopp’s Reds given they went into the game off the back of three dismal defeats in a row.

‘Pulling it off’

And West Ham star Michail Antonio looks like he is still in shock judging by a picture he posted of his hair on social media.

Antonio posted on Twitter that he was “Feeling electric #PullingItOff,” accompanied by a picture of his hair looking just that.

It is not clear whether Antonio plans to sport the super high new hair-do against the Eagles or if he was just mid hair-do.

But many Hammers fans want him to keep it for the game, which could push West Ham up to eighth with a win.

Antonio Trolled… in a nice way

The post attracted lots of comments and plenty of comparisons too.

Some supporters likened Antonio’s hair to a Troll doll. Others said it looked like Jimmy Neutron and some like famous boxing promoter Don King.

The powerful forward is slowly but surely finding his best form after a torrid 18 months with injury.

Antonio full of confidence, unlike pundits

He scored a fine goal against the Reds and will be looking to build on that at Selhurst.

Some pundits aren’t confident, though, given West Ham’s inconsistency this season.

Sky Sports’ Paul Merson and BBC Sport’s Mark Lawrenson are in agreement.

The pair don’t believe West Ham will beat Palace and each delivered a scathing assessment of Pellegrini’s side.
