Michail Antonio claims that West Ham’s cup tie against Tottenham has got the group WhatsApp “buzzing”.
The Hammers take on Spurs in Saturday’s early game, but it is their Carabao Cup tie at Wembley next month that has got the players’ adrenaline going.
The ex-Forest man spoke exclusively to Mirror Football at the official EA Sports FIFA 18 launch, admitting he is looking forward to playing in front of 90,000 fans.
“It will be unbelievable,” he said.
“Every game we play against Tottenham, the atmosphere is unbelievable. There will easily be 90,000 fans there. What a draw.
“When we saw it, the boys were buzzing. We’ve got a WhatsApp chat. I’ve read through it and honestly some of the replies… it’s amazing.”
“It’s a massive game,” he continued. “But we’re feeling very positive. We’ve had three clean sheets from our last three games.
“We’ve definitely turned a corner. We believe we can go on a nice little run. In the first three games we conceded 10 goals.
“But now, in the last three games,we haven’t conceded any. So, we believe that if we don’t concede goals, we will score goals especially with the front six we have.
“Everything’s positive from here and we just want to build on it.”
