West Ham’s historic FA Cup encounter with Manchester United

Slaven Bilic’s side West Ham United to host Manchester United in their last ever FA Cup match at the Boleyn Ground on Wednesday night.

The Hammers are into the game off the back of a 10-match unbeaten run while the Red Devils were well beaten 3-0 by Tottenham last time out.

The two teams are in race for a battle with Manchester City for the last Champions League place in the Premier League table.

West Ham has been superior this season, have surrendered leads in 2-2 draws with Chelsea and Crystal Palace and later 3-3 with Arsenal with a number of decisions were against them.

West Ham line-up:

West Ham goalkeeper Darren Randolph has been in impressive form this season, and it will be easier for Bilic to pick the Irishman to face the Manchester United at Upton Park.

Winston Reid is apparently club’s best defender but he has been struggling for his form since his return to the playing side after his latest injury lay-off.

James Tomkins was rusty against Arsenal and was replaced at second half with Michail Antonio deployed as a right back.

Hammers supporters are big admirers of Pedro Obiang, who has made 28 appearances for the club this season in all competition, every-time he plays West Ham likely to win.
