The TV presenter is fast becoming West Ham's secret admirer!
It's a stark departure from the barrage of criticism the television presenter has aimed at the east London club in the past.
This season, he has constantly emphasised his prediction that West Ham will collapse and finish with the same - or less - points than under Sam Allardyce last season.
Recently, it's perhaps become clear to Keys that that won't happen.
"Liverpool survive but if I'm honest I hope West Ham turf them out in the replay. At least Slaven Bilic and his team look as though they want to win the tie. And I like the way Bilic talks so emotionally about the competition."
West Ham face Aston Villa in the Premier League on Tuesday night and, on Sunday, announced the loan signing of Emmanuel Emenike.
As well as the FA Cup, then, the Hammers can look forward to an exciting rest of the season in the Premier League.
