Michail Antonio is known for his creative goal celebrations and the West Ham striker says he’s got something special planned if he scores against Newcastle.

West Ham host the Magpies in the Premier League on Saturday in a crucial match at both ends of the table.

The Hammers are currently fifth but will move back into the Champions League places if they beat Newcastle in the early kick-off.

Meanwhile, Newcastle could move seven points clear of the relegation places if they win away at the London Stadium.

Bragging rights are also at stake, with Antonio coming up against the club of his Footballer’s Football Podcast co-host Callum Wilson.

Wilson is currently out injured with a calf injury and is not expected to feature for Newcastle until the final weeks of the season.

And Antonio has revealed he plans on mocking the England international if he scores this weekend.

Speaking to Wilson on the Footballer’s Football Podcast, Antonio 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.”

Antonio is known for his unique, and sometimes bizarre, goal celebrations.

Earlier this season, he pulled a cardboard cut-out of himself out of the crowd to celebrate a goal in West Ham’s 4-1 win over Leicester.

He’s had plenty of opportunity to celebrate after scoring eight times in his 24 Premier League appearances this season.

No doubt, Wilson will be hoping he won’t add to that tally on Saturday.
