The Hammers boss says his side are going to 'have a real go.'
And the Hammers boss has promised supporters of the east London side that the tournament will be a priority for them in 2015.
"One thing I can assure West Ham fans is the FA Cup tie at Everton on January 6 will be a priority for us," the 60-year-old wrote in his weekly column for the London Evening Standard.
"We have a full squad, we’re in a great position in the Premier League so there is absolutely no reason why we shouldn’t have a real go at it.
"The only downside is that, because the tie is not until Tuesday January 6, our African players — Diafra Sakho, Cheikhou Kouyate and Alex Song — will have already departed for the African Cup of Nations."
