Antonio sees funny side of West Ham fan poking fun at his situation

Michail Antonio saw the funny side of his lack of playing time at West Ham.

West Ham winger Michail Antonio has struggled to make an impact at the club since signing from Nottingham Forest - playing only 30 minutes of Premier League football.

Antonio has an increased chance of game time due to Dmitri Payet's injury against Everton, but manager Slaven Bilic needs to show faith in him.

One Hammers fan joked that Bilic does not rate the former Championship star, taking to Twitter to post a message to Antonio suggesting so.

Antonio showed he is keeping upbeat, by responding with a couple of emoji faces to suggest he found the message amusing.

Antonio's record for Nottingham Forest suggest West Ham have little to lose by giving him an opportunity, especially having paid £7 million to sign him.

The winger scored 19 goals in 54 games for the club, also providing 15 assists along the way.

With a London derby against Tottenham Hotspur next up on Sunday, Antonio has the perfect opportunity to become a hero if Bilic decides to spin his wheel in his favour.
