"West Ham will be a tougher proposition due to their new manager,” he told fulhamfc.com. “Obviously when a new manager goes to a club they have an immediate effect. Everyone is trying to impress, everyone is fighting for a position, so their players will all be up for it, but I think they would be anyway. It’s a London derby and their fans are very passionate like ours, so they’ll want their team to perform.
“I’m expecting a good game. I think any team under Zola will be a good footballing one. I don’t think for a second he’s going to have them launching it from the back! So I think from a spectator’s point of view it will be a good game of football. I’m sure there’ll be chances for both sides because it’s between two attacking sides who like to win matches.
"So, it’s a game that everybody is looking forward to, especially us because we had the bad result last weekend and we want to put that right.”
