Richard Keys makes a positive comment about West Ham

Slaven Bilic

West Ham United will take on Manchester United in the FA Cup today.

Well-known sports presenter Richard Keys has told Sport360.com that he would love to see West Ham United win the FA Cup this season.

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic is taking the prestigious cup competition seriously this campaign.

The Hammers will face Premier League rivals Manchester United away from home at Old Trafford in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup this evening.

Keys has backed the London outfit to win the match 2-1 and progress to the semi-finals.

“West Ham really want to win the FA Cup,” the former Sky Sports presenter told Sport360.com. “Bilic is taking it seriously and because of that I would love to see them win it. For me, they are a better team than United and the desire to lift that trophy will carry them through. 1-2.”

West Ham are having a wonderful season, and they will fancy their chances of winning today’s tie against United.

What is encouraging about the Hammers is that they are also having a very good Premier League campaign.

Recent results have put Bilic’s team in a very good position to push for a top-four finish. A Champions League place and an FA Cup triumph for West Ham this season? Why not?

What a way it would be to bid farewell to the Boleyn Ground!
