FA Cup Quarter-Final Replay
Live on BBC One / BBC One HD
West Ham looks to continue a fine debut campaign under Slaven Bilic with progression into the semi-finals of the FA Cup. The first game at Old Trafford finished in 1-1 draw, but the Hammers ill fancy their chances of progressing on home soil.
The Hammers stellar campaign has slowed slightly in recent weeks, as Bilic’s side have drawn their last four games in all competitions. The Hammers are odds of 15/8 with Paddy Power to win this clash.
One of the key factors in the Irons good season so far has been the form of French international playmaker Dimitri Payet, who has scored 12 goals and produced 11 assists this season in all competitions. The former-Marseille star is odds of 15/2 with BetVictor to open the scoring in this clash.
Manchester United heads into this clash on the back of a 3-0 defeat at Tottenham last time out, which dented their chances of finishing in the Premier League top four. This game will take on extra significance because of the Red Devils struggles to clinch a Champions League spot.
United have just edged the five past FA Cup meetings, winning recording two wins compared to the Hammers one victory in the competition against the Red Devils. Louis van Gaal’s have enjoyed patchy results of late, but have suffered defeat just once in their last five outings in all competitions.
United can be backed at odds of 9/5 with Bet365 to make their way into the last four of the historic cup competition.
The first game finished all-square, so if you fancy a repeat of that then the draw can be backed at odds of 12/5 at Bet365.
I can see West Ham edging this clash and claiming the win, so back the Irons to win at odds of 15/8 with Paddy Power.
