Mikey reveals his big secret

Mikey Antonio has revealed the secret to his incredible form this season.

The Hammer has been exceptional up front for the Irons thus far this term, scoring seven goals in 14 games in all competitions.

Mikey has also chipped in with four assists and has been absolutely central to the success of David Moyes’ side this season, both in the Premier League and the Europa League.

And the striker has now revealed that the secret of his success has been a new greens-based diet that is powering him to hit the back of the net.

Speaking to the club’s official website, the Jamaica international said: “I did some studying and realised a lot of people are becoming vegans because they believe it keeps them clear of injury.

“What I’ve found in my research is that this is to do with the alkaline in the veg, and obviously vegans have more of that in their diet.

“I’ve not become completely vegan – I still have my chicken and my fish – but I eat a lot more greens and get a lot more alkaline in my meals, which helps to heal the muscles after games.”

Mikey is also confident that the club can continue their top-four push with West Ham preparing for a clash with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday; winning that would move the Irons level on points with Pep Guardiola’s men in second place in the table.

The in-form ace added: “Right now, we’re in a Champions League position – all we need to do now is keep being consistent, keep pushing and keep believing that anything is possible.

“I’m the most comfortable as a striker now but I’d also say it’s the toughest position. Being the No9, being the focal point, means you’ve got to get goals, and scoring goals is the hardest thing to do in football.”
