West Ham United are set to take on Manchester United at Upton Park tomorrow.

Slaven Bilic has told West Ham United’s official site that he believes his side have an advantage over Manchester United tomorrow evening, as the atmosphere will be electric at Upton Park.

West Ham are set to take on United in the last ever competitive match to be played at the Boleyn Ground.

The Hammers are set to move to the Olympic Stadium next season, and supporters and players alike will all be wanting to ensure that they end their time at Upton Park with a win.

It is expected to be an emotional occasion tomorrow evening, but Bilic believes that his squad will be able to use the anticipation to their benefit.

“The atmosphere tomorrow is going to be an advantage for us,” he said.

“I work with those players every day, and I’m sure that we are going to improve.

“We must make sure we’re not over-emotional or over-motivated and I am sure we are going to do it.”

West Ham go into the match on the back of a 4-1 defeat against Swansea City, so they will be determined to put things right.

However, United have their own motivation to win the fixture as they are still chasing down a top four spot.

The Red Devils need to take maximum points from their final two matches to ensure that they will finish in the Champions League qualification spaces.

West Ham’s main objective, meanwhile, will be to protect their place in the top six, with Southampton breathing down their necks.
