Neil Warnock predicts who'll win West Ham's game v Liverpool

Neil Warnock believes West Ham have the advantage v Liverpool this evening.

Speaking to talkSPORT's Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show, Neil Warnock has admitted that West Ham have it in them to defeat Liverpool this evening, as the two teams face off for their FA Cup replay.

Warnock said: “West Ham will think, having got out of prison [in the last game], that this is their opportunity to progress. They are the type of club, who, on their day, can beat anybody in the cup.”

The first tie ended 0-0 at Anfield, with Liverpool’s much-changed team failing to capitalise on a West Ham side who looked off form.

Neither side were at the top of their game, and this resulted in a poor tie, with the draw meaning that a replay was needed.

Since that game, both teams have endured mixed fortunes, with the Hammers picking up a win over Aston Villa and then a loss to Southampton in the Premier League.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have failed to win since that game, losing 2-0 to Leicester, and then falling to a late collapse against Sunderland on Saturday, leading 2-0 to draw 2-2 in the final stages.

The game has to be won on the night, meaning that a penalty shootout could be necessary, and Warnock believes that the Hammers have just got it in them to secure progression to the next round - and the tie with Blackburn that will secure.
