West Ham’s Michail Antonio has been stoking up the rivalry before tomorrow night’s Premier League clash against Fulham.
The Hammers star used a short clip from Ali G Indahouse to emphasise the difference between the East and West Side of London:

Fans on Twitter were enjoying Antonio’s attempts to ramp up the stakes. They are also hoping that the winger takes inspiration from Ali G with his goal celebration if he scores tomorrow:

West Ham are favourites heading into the game at the London Stadium. Fulham’s away record is absolutely appalling. They have picked up just two points on the road this season, with two draws and eleven defeats.
The Cottagers have scored just eight goals in their 13 away games, conceding a total of 32 in the process. While the Irons’ home record isn’t much to shout about either, they are justifiably being backed to come away with the three points.
