Downing: If I was a fan, I'd boo West Ham as well!

West Ham United midfielder Stewart Downing could understand fans' frustration after their FA Cup elimination.

West Ham were dumped out of the FA Cup by West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

"We were 4-0 down and they paid a lot of money to come. If they want to voice their frustration, I am sure they do that. I would be the same had I been watching that, I would have been disappointed," said Downing.

"If we get a result against Tottenham then we can put that to bed and have a good finish in the league. If you tell the fans that we finish in Europe and get knocked out of the Cup they will take it.

"We have to do that now and finish as high as we can in the league."
