West Ham’s Antonio caps game-winning goal with Homer Simpson celebration
If you’re associated with West Ham in any which way, you deserve to celebrate a little.
The Hammers have flourished under Croatian boss Slaven Bilic, and have hovered in and around the top four for much of the current Premier League campaign. Saturday’s 1-0 victory over lowly Sunderland marked another triumph for the East Londoners, and they did it in some style.
Michail Antonio collected the ball down the flank before splitting a pair of Sunderland defenders and dispatching a composed, left-footed effort past Vito Mannone for the game’s lone goal. His celebration, though? Bizarre, to say the least. Watch:
Goal? Check. Great celebration? Check.

ANTONIO: "I thought up the celebration in my hotel room but when I told the boys they said I wouldn't have the guts to do it, but I did!!

Can you name that ‘Simpsons’ episode? If you guessed, "Last Exit to Springfield," you get a cookie.
