West Ham take on Man Utd on Saturday 5th January, 2013, with kickoff at 12:30. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ITV1.
The Return of the Prince, now dethroned but still with as much glamour as any other Hammer, will have given the Iron fans a boost this week and it will be interesting to see how much freedom to play Joe Cole is given by a manager that traditionally likes to keep it simple. United may not be that bothered about the cup, as they are still in the Champions League, but they win as a habit.
Whoever takes victory today will feel good about their chances in the cup overall, so watch this game to potentially see the finalists in early action.
