Dimitri Payet tussles with Mark Noble in West Ham United training

Upton Park

The Hammers were put through their paces ahead of facing Manchester United.

West Ham United continued their pre-match preparations this morning ahead of Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final with Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Centre-back Winston Reid, who has been nursing a hamstring injury for the past month after damaging it against Liverpool in the previous round, looked business-like on the training ground as he continues to battle back to full fitness.

Dimitri Payet, arguably the Irons' player of the season, was also present as he jostled with the tenacious Mark Noble for possession.

 

 

There was also room for 17-year-old academy product Reece Oxford, who looks set to deputise for James Collins at centre-half again for what will certainly be the biggest day of his burgeoning career.

Oxford impressed in last Saturday's 3-2 win at Everton, and the youngster will need another mature performance if he wants to avoid a nightmare at the Theatre of Dreams.

Sunday's clash gets underway at approximately 4pm.
