David Moyes' side, of course, subsequently fell to a 3-1 defeat on Sunday afternoon, during which Antonio failed to score and was substituted as the game entered the final 15 minutes.
Plenty of Liverpool fans were quick to poke fun at the Jamaica international after his pre-match comments horrendously backfired, though the 33-year-old has refused the opportunity to respond to his remarks.
