Speaking on the Footballer’s Football Podcast, a show both Antonio and Wilson host, the Hammers’ forward said: “It is definitely going to be a hard game with the way you guys have performed in the past few weeks, you see the resilience in your team, and we’ve shown that as well.

“We’ve basically gotten things even though we’ve not performed at our best. Three points are needed to be fair, we’re going for this fourth spot so we can’t let up. We have to go for it, and as much as I like you and the relationship that we’ve built on this podcast, we can’t let up, and if I score this weekend I will throw up a W for you.
