“The cup is a tournament where form doesn’t necessarily win games. Luck has a lot to do with it. But the closer we get to Wembley, the better we become.”

– Sir Alex Ferguson

Sir Alex eyes FA Cup run

“But I think with a club like ours, the closer we get to Wembley, the better we become.”

Sam Allardyce’s West Ham continue that run of tricky cup opponents and Sir Alex indicated he’ll field a strong team this weekend to give his side the best possible chance of progressing.

“It’s a particularly hard one as they’re in good form and at home,” the Reds boss said. “Sam has done a great job there, getting them promoted first of all, and their form has been good with some excellent results.

“So it’s going to be a tough game and I don’t think we’ll make too many changes. I think, more or less, we’ll play a strong team and hopefully we’ll get through.”
