West Ham United are set to face Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-final tomorrow.

Manager Slaven Bilic has insisted to West Ham United's official site that he will not be resting players for his side's match against Manchester United.

The Hammers are still looking to compete on two fronts this season. They are not only challenging for a top four place, but they also have ambitions of winning the FA Cup.

And Bilic insists that one competition will not take priority over the other, as he wants to be successful in both.

"We got to Leicester City on Sunday in the Premier League, and I have said before we have a big week, but we take it game-by-game and we didn’t think about this game before the Arsenal game," the Croatian boss said. 

"When we make the team selection, we take this game on its own. Of course, we know we have to play the other games but that is not affecting our selection or the way we are training or resting and all that.

"When it comes to the games, in the position we are in, we cannot prioritise and we are going to put everything we can into every game. We will pick the best team we can."

West Ham’s match against Manchester United will be the final FA cup fixture ever hosted at Upton Park, which gives the game extra meaning.

The Hammers have drawn both their matches against the Red Devils to date this season, but there will have to be a winner on Wednesday evening.

Bilic has previously suggested that winning the FA Cup would mean more to him than qualifying for the Champions League, and he has named strong teams in every match in the competition so far.

The winners of West Ham’s match against Manchester United tomorrow will go on to face Everton in the semi-final at Wembley later this month.
