United have been very dominant in the David Moyes Cup lately, at least in the Premier League. They have won the last five against WHU and are undefeated in eight of the last nine against in the Irons in the league.
Moyes, the Chosen One to replace Sir Alex Ferguson in 2014, but sacked after just ten months on the job, is excited about the opportunity to face his former club once again.
“I’m really looking forward to the game. I think it’s a really good game for us at West Ham,” Moyes said.
“I think maybe at the moment that’s the game we need because I think we’ve got players who want to play on the big stage and players who can play on the big stage.
