West Ham fans are buzzing for Michail Antonio’s return

The anticipation is already building for West Ham United’s match against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

Both teams have been struggling this season, with the Hammers 16th and Spurs sitting 14th in the Premier League table.

The Hammers dropped a hint prior to the game that Michail Antonio may be available, after working his way back from the injury sustained in the Carabao Cup against Newport County:

The 29-year-old has missed nine games due to the injury, though this would be a great time for him to make a return to the lineup, particularly when the London rivalry and opportunity to end a 7 game winless run in all competitions is considered.

He is also the perfect man to make an impact in this specific fixture, having scored the winner in the final matchup at Upton Park and first at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
