  3. What the managers have to say

    FA Cup third round, West Ham v Man City (19:55 GMT - live on BBC One)

    Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola: "I am not going to be training when I am 60 years old. But guys, I am 45! I am not going to retire in two or three years.

    "I love my job and am in the perfect place to do my job, especially here in England... maybe it was inappropriate to say I am starting to say goodbye to my career, but I know what I am thinking about when I am going to retire.

    "When I said compare history and titles with United and Liverpool, Barcelona and Madrid, that kind of club, we are behind. If people don't understand that, I am sorry. In terms of just titles, we are behind other clubs in the last 20 years.

    "In the last five or six years Manchester City have been the best club. They are the club who have achieved the most. In terms of targets of getting better, of growing, of achieving the most, they are the best in the world, by far."

  5. What the managers have to say

    FA Cup third round, West Ham v Man City (19:55 GMT - live on BBC One)

    West Ham manager Slaven Bilic: "They [City] had a brilliant start to the season and then they slowed down a little bit.

    "This is a big game for us and big game for them, it is the FA Cup and it is big for the fans.

    "They will put out a very strong team because it is a big chance for them to get a trophy. Maybe after the great start they made, maybe some fans, pundits or football people expected them to cruise in the league, especially with [Pep] Guardiola, especially after that start.

    "But it is never easy in any league, especially here. They are not struggling but, for their standards, to be seven points from the top is probably not what they expected."

    West Ham celebrate winning the 1980 FA Cup

    1964, 1975 and 1980. West Ham's FA Cup-winning years remain the club's finest achievements* and bring misty-eyed memories to those old enough to remember.

    All before Slaven Bilic - but as someone whose Hammers association began 21 years ago this week, he understands the competition's importance to the club.

    Manchester City boast five FA Cup triumphs, with their latest in 2011 proving the catalyst for their Premier League title win the following year.

    Moreover, Pep Guardiola showed how much he values success in the knockout competitions by consistently selecting strong sides in leading Bayern Munich to victory in the German Cup twice.

    Both are in it to win it. Only one can. Magic.

    *NB: Yes, the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1965 was special but they couldn't have won it without the FA Cup!

  17. Sunderland's Defoe 'not for sale' says Moyes

    Football

    Jermain Defoe is not for sale, according to Sunderland boss David Moyes, after speculation linking him to West Ham.

    The Black Cats have already rejected a £6m bid from the Hammers, but West Ham are reportedly ready to double their bid.

    "We have said Jermain is not for sale and he is not for sale. West Ham made a bid and we rejected it," Moyes said.

    Defoe is Sunderland's top scorer with 11 goals in 21 appearances this season.

  18. 'Other clubs have players available and that doesn't seem fair'

    FA Cup third round, Stokes v Wolves (Sat, 15:00 GMT)

    Stoke manager Mark Hughes on losing players to the Africa Cup of Nations: "We were allowed to play Mame Diouf against Watford, but that was all we could get. 

    "Other clubs have players available and that doesn't seem fair to me. All players playing in the competition should have to go at the same time, and maybe Fifa should have got involved. 

    "We weren't allowed the luxury of having Wilfried (Bony) and Ramadan (Sobhi) available to us, whereby other players from those countries were allowed to play for their club sides."

  19. Feghouli's ready...
