Dramatic FA Cup win over Liverpool will go down in West Ham history – Bilic

West Ham United boss Slaven Bilic has labelled the FA Cup fourth round replay extra-time win over Liverpool as historic for the club.

The Hammers needed a 121st-minute goal from Angelo Ogbonna to defeat Liverpool 2-1 and progress to the next round, evoking plenty of emotions in the manager.

"I can explain my feelings, and I can't at the same time," Bilic said.

"It is great, for me a really great game of football.

"It was a classic FA Cup tie. It will go into the history of West Ham's greatest games.

"Liverpool, last season at Upton Park, night kick-off, goal in the last minute.

"And we deserved it, I am very proud of the guys. They left their heart on the pitch."
