However, the popular “Boro” has remained unbeaten in the last two rounds, while in this period still chested and place in the next round of the FA Cup, so it is certainly not without chances in this match with the “hammer”, which are on the other side after three straight defeats last weekend finally came up one win.

We believe that it is now both teams meet with the division points, with the home team certainly wants the full loot, since they currently only four points separate themselves from the relegation zone. But for something like that still have to show a lot more desire and aggressiveness in the attack than in the previous two rounds, in which they played 0: 0 at home against Leicester and the side at Watford. However, the chosen coach Karanka has primarily been important to stay undefeated, as in the previous two rounds lost on the road at Burnley and Manchester City, which are themselves further complicated the situation in the fight for survival.
However, after the two tied draws again have four points more than 18th Hull, until recently over second division side Sheffield Wednesday qualified for the fourth round of the FA Cup, so we can say that in a good mood await see West Ham thing. All the more so because in this transfer window strengthened with two attackers, and Gestedeom Bamford, who has already made his debut in the last round, and now would be the opinion of many could easily find and start 11th As for absences due to injury are still out defenders Barragan and Husband and midfielder Ramirez, eligible to play until no suspended defender Ayala.
