West Ham ace Michail Antonio has taken a cheeky swipe at Tottenham by suggesting that the north London club’s home ground is his favourite stadium, when speaking exclusively to the Hammers’ official website.

Spurs moved into their new stadium towards the end of last season. And they won their first four home games before playing host to West Ham in late April.

The Hammers turned up in north London and caused a big shock.

The east London outfit were the first away team to score a goal at Tottenham’s new stadium. And they were the first visiting side to take all three points away from the contest with them.

Michail Antonio scored West Ham’s winning goal that day midway through the first half.

And the 30-year-old Hammers ace took a cheeky dig at Spurs, when asked by WHUFC.com which is his favourite stadium in world football:

“The new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, because I’m in the history books there.”


Joking aside, Tottenham’s new stadium really is magnificent. It is a remarkable feat of modern architecture.

And if West Ham fans are being honest, they are surely at least a little bit envious of their fierce rival’s stadium.

The Hammers moved to their new home in the summer of 2016. And you will be hard pushed to find a West Ham fan who has been pleased with the transition from Upton Park.

Tottenham fans should be very grateful for how their club went about their move from White Hart Lane in comparison.
