One game I'd change...

Michail Antonio says if there was a single result he could change in his career it would be West Ham's Europa League semi-final defeat at the hands of Frankfurt.

The Hammers - who won the Europa Conference League a year later - went down 1-0 away from home to lose 3-1 on aggregate, with Aaron Cresswell sent off in the second leg.

Asked by a listener on The Footballer's Football Podcast about a game he would change if he could, Antonio said: "Frankfurt, semi-final of the Europa League.

"We honestly believed we were going to win the whole thing, that we were going all the way. We were down from the first leg and believed we would score and get it back. Something happened in the game and even though that happened we still put in a good performance and couldn't turn it around.

"That is one game I 100% would change the result for. We saw it as a positive. You're down at the time. But when we went into a new season, we took it as a positive."
