Michail Antonio was left to eat his own words after Liverpool's 3-1 victory at the expense of West Ham United on Sunday afternoon.
The Hammers' forward delivered a bold prediction ahead of today's Premier League fixture at Anfield, insisting his side had 'got' Liverpool and were going to finish above Jurgen Klopp's side in the table this season.
Unable to deliver on the pitch, Antonio could not inspire his team to three points despite claiming the Reds were there for the taking after what he viewed as a below-par display at Wolves the previous weekend.
Goals from Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota helped Liverpool ensure there was to be no win for West Ham on this occasion, leaving plenty of Reds supporters keen to pick Antonio up on his pre-match comments.

Two former Liverpool players also weighed on the remarks of the Jamaica international, with Jason McAteer making a light-hearted promise to viewers on beinSPORTS regarding Antonio backing his current employers to outshine Liverpool in the top-flight. "If they do that, I will sit here without my shirt and tie on," McAteer said.
Lucas Leiva also viewed this result as an opportunity to poke fun at West Ham's marksman, leaving his trademark 'unlucky' phrase on an Instagram post referencing the former Nottingham Forest star.Read on liverpoolecho.co.uk
