Hammers to visit Brit in last eight

Hammers to visit Brit in last eight

West Ham has booked their trip to the Britannia to face Stoke in the FA Cup Quarter Finals after a convincing thrashing of Burnley last night. The intriguing tie will take place across the weekend of March 12/13 with the winners booking their place in the last four, and a guaranteed trip to Wembley.

The Hammers and the Potters have already met twice this season, and will meet again in the league a week before their cup clash. So far it`s the London based team that have the better of the games drawing 1-1 at Stoke in September, and winning 3-1 after extra time in the league cup 4th round.

However, the Potters will be favourites to progress against their relegation threatened opponents and with Manchester United and Arsenal expected to meet, this years competition is the best we have of getting to the final, or dare we say win it.
