"Even if it wasnít at Wembley, it would be a massive game, as any game when West Ham and Tottenham are playing," he told whufc.com. "Especially so as they beat us at home.

"We need to go there and beat them at their home. Weíve got to steady our minds, go there and perform for the fans. Itís Wembley. As much as they are playing home games there all season, itís Wembley so itís exciting for any team that goes there.

ďThere are going to be loads of players who have not had the opportunity to play there, who will now get the opportunity. People are going to turn up and want to perform there because it is a historic ground."

West Ham face Spurs in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night; the match is a an all-ticket affair.
