Michail Antonio has stoked the fire ahead of tonight’s London derby clash between West Ham and Tottenham by suggesting that Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son are very similar to any other forwards his side come up against, when speaking to Sky Sports.

Tonight’s game is a hugely important one for both the Hammers and Spurs.
West Ham need to win in order to separate themselves from the bottom three. Tottenham, meanwhile, need all three points to give themselves any chance whatsoever of a top four finish.
David Moyes needs to be brave with his team selection. But most importantly, his players need to show more than they did against Wolves at the London Stadium on Saturday.
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will not be an easy place to go for West Ham tonight. And Jose Mourinho will be keen to do the double over one of Spurs’ biggest rivals.
Tottenham have an extremely dangerous front-line. Arguably, their best two players are Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son.
But Antonio has told Sky Sports that the Englishman and the South Korean are not any more dangerous than other forwards the Hammers come up against:
“As much as Harry Kane and Son are quality players – I feel like every team has got those quality players.”
That could be a dangerous move from Antonio.
Kane and Son will surely read the 30-year-old’s remarks, and be even more determined to cause West Ham problems tonight.
The two Tottenham players are always dangerous. And the Hammers’ defence will have to be on their guard all night if they are to prevent the duo from scoring.
