This week sees some FA Cup third round replays take place and on Wednesday evening, Manchester United entertain West Ham United at Old Trafford. The tie will of course be decided on the night, so there is a chance of extra time and penalties, which always gets the fans excited.

In truth, these FA Cup replays are not often the most enthralling encounters, but his looks to be an exception as both sides are looking to go on a good cup run this season and might put out a strong team.

Manchester United will of course be the favourites as they are on home soil, but it is difficult to know just what sort of side Sir Alex Ferguson will send out to claim a victory. It will be a strong one, but their main man at the moment, Robin van Persie, could be left on the bench and wrapped in cotton wool for the 90 minutes unless he is needed to get the Red Devils out of trouble.

Danny Welbeck could be given another chance up front after his impressive display against Liverpool on Sunday in the Premier League and Javier Hernandez would be the likely partner for the England international.

The FA Cup has not been the best competition for Ferguson’s men over the years and after not winning any major trophies last season, he is out to fill that cabinet at Old Trafford once more, so will be taking this competition very seriously indeed.

As for West Ham, they would have been disappointed to concede such a late goal against United in the first leg of this tie as it was a great chance for them to progress at Upton Park.

They have to now come to the home of the Red Devils and try to take the game their opponents. Sam Allardyce is sure to have a game plan for this match and his men have to execute that perfectly in order to take something from this one. They might come for the draw and look to take the match to a dramatic penalty shootout.

The Hammers don’t have the same strength in depth as Man United, so cannot afford to rest many players. It is likely Allardyce will name a full strength side for this tough encounter.

An interesting 90 minutes - possibly more - await and the winner will face a home match against either Fulham of Blackpool, so whoever progresses is sure to be confident of making the last 16.
