Newcastle United star Callum Wilson rinses West Ham man Michail Antonio with brilliant Miguel Almiron quip

Callum Wilson was in hysterics as he taunted Footballer’s Football Podcast co-host and West Ham man Michail Antonio

Newcastle United star Callum Wilson wound up misfiring West Ham United pal Michail Antonio by quipping that he'd hand over the phone number of Magpies midfielder Miguel Almiron to teach him how to score.

The Paraguayan winger is enjoying a purple patch in the Premier League with seven goals in his last seven matches. Meanwhile, the Hammers striker has been goal-shy in the league this term with only two goals to his name.

Antonio's lack of form in front of goal has been a frequent source of banter for Wilson as the duo host BBC Sounds' Footballer's Football Podcast together. In the most recent episode, the strikers talked about Newcastle's high-flying form, the England squad for the World Cup and, of course, the form of Almiron.

Wilson said: "People are stepping up - Miggy scored again, this guy is on fire at the moment, he can't stop scoring. I might give his number to Michail so he can give him a call to get some tips and that!

"I want him to score in the next time so he can get closer to Premier League history, he's got 12 to beat. Miggy has a lot to go but the way he's going at the moment, he's doing alright."

Wilson was referring to the record held by Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy who broke Manchester United legend Ruud van Nistelrooy's title for goals scored in most consecutive games. In 2015, Vardy netted in 11 consecutive matches.

Almiron has a way to go with goals in four consecutive games now, but Wilson seemed to believe his teammate has the quality to keep his run of fine goalscoring form going. In Almiron had scored in the fixture away at Old Trafford on October 16, his roll would be seven games stretching back to the meeting with Fulham on October 1.

Shortly after goading Antonio and praising Almiron, Wilson also responded to claims set out by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola saying that Newcastle were title contenders.

Wilson replied: "Relax, relax, relax. Obviously, we plan to win. The league table is speaking for itself after how we've been playing. People are just trying to pass the pressure onto other people. We focus on us, they focus on them."
