Mark Noble states bold prediction ahead of West Ham v Man United
Mark Noble is confident West Ham can beat Manchester United in their FA Cup quarter-final replay
Mark Noble is confident West Ham can add Manchester United to their list of scalps in their FA Cup quarter-final replay at Upton Park on Wednesday night.
The Hammers were denied a place in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley last month after Anthony Martial’s late equaliser cancelled out Dimitri Payet’s brilliant free-kick.
The east London side have already beaten Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League this season during an outstanding first campaign under Slaven Bilic.
West Ham midfielder Noble explained why the Hammers are feeling confident ahead of Wednesday night’s quarter-final replay.
“We’re a good team now and people are going to fear coming to Upton Park,” Noble told Joe.co.uk.
“If we play as well as we can do, we’ve beaten a lot of big teams at home already this season and I’m sure we can do it again.”
The Red Devils have a miserable record in the English capital and Louis van Gaal’s side lost 3-0 to Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon.
Only Arsenal have won the FA Cup more times than United. The Red Devils have won the competition seven times in their rich history.
