West Ham star Antonio tells Ajax: That's how you beat Tottenham

Michael Antonio believes West Ham United have shown Ajax how they can beat Tottenham Hotspur.

The Hammers delivered a surprise 1-0 away victory over Spurs on Saturday thanks to a second-half goal from Antonio.

And the Englishman thinks Ajax, who will face the North Londoners in the Champions League semi-final on Tuesday, should have been taking notes of the encounter.

Asked if his strike may have given Ajax a tip on how to play Spurs, Antonio said: "Definitely. The gaffer said that we should make runs in behind them because their defence doesn't like to be facing their own goal.

"We kept getting behind their full-backs and central defenders and that's how we created the goal."
