Three of the last five Premier League games between these two clubs have ended in a draw, with one win apiece in this run.

So what about his stature on the world stage? They know what I am expecting on Sunday.

Expectations have sky-rocked so quickly after the Hammers signed four experienced players including ex-Man United star Chicharito.
