Watch our for a rabona Deeney!

Lanzini tried to score with a rabona

s coming his way tonight.

The Watford player had claimed after the 4-2 victory over us at the London Stadium the Hornets had hit back because the Hammers had attempted to “mug us off”

Payet who left the club last month – had ­performed a rabona cross to set up the second goal for Michail Antonio at the London Stadium, while Manuel Lanzini tried to score with the same trick.

“As a professional you cannot allow someone to do that to you,” captain Deeney said.

But Bilic responded by saying:”Troy Deeney said that, yes, but it was a good moment for him to say that, to show the spirit of that team – but we didn’t try to humiliate them.

“Will I remind the players about what he said? Maybe. But not like when you build your team talk around that.

“Maybe someone else will mention it but extra ­motivation can never harm you, if it doesn’t produce a negative kind of pressure.”

“I don’t think it’s anything to do with ­humiliation. It’s part of his game and the way he crosses the ball is better than in a normal way.

“It means the goalkeeper is not ready for the cross. He’s expecting you to roll the ball and then whip it in.

“This is a big surprise. It’s the reason we scored that goal because neither the keeper nor defenders were ready for the cross. Every football fan can see a situation that is over the top, when you are ­disrespecting opponents.

“But I would never count rabonas in that category.”
