West Ham ace Michail Antonio makes 'frightening' Tottenham prediction

West Ham attacker Michail Antonio has backed ‘frightening’ Tottenham Hotspur to surprise a few people this season.

Tottenham finished in fourth spot in the Premier League table last season with Antonio Conte performing a huge turnaround at the north London club after he took over from Nuno Espirito Santo.

Spurs were already a pretty fearsome outfit but the general consensus is that they could be even more dangerous this season.

Not many people are backing Tottenham to challenge for the title though. Manchester City and Liverpool will surely be just too strong.

Having said that, they might just surprise a few people this season according to Antonio…

Michail Antonio makes Tottenham prediction

Deep down, most West Ham fans realise that Spurs may well be a real force this season.

And Antonio alluded to that when speaking on the Footballer’s Football Podcast:

“Spurs, the signings they’ve made with Conte, they’re solid, that’s what he does with his teams they’re solid teams. He knows his shape, he knows how he plays, he has his routine. It’s more the signings and the players going forward. If Kane dips they have Son, if Son dips they have Kane and Richarlison, Kulusevski on the right. Going forward they’re looking frightening. I feel like they’re going to surprise people, especially off the end of last season where they picked up so well under Conte.”

Tottenham may well be very dangerous this season.

We think that West Ham might surprise a few people as well though.

David Moyes has already brought some seriously good players to the London Stadium. And if he can add a few more, we will be in great shape.

It’s hard to ague with the comments from Michail Antonio on Tottenham but hopefully we give them a lot to think about next season as well.
