West Ham have enjoyed a fine start to December after Tuesday night’s victory over Cardiff City secured back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the first time this season.
The two victories provide Manuel Pellegrini’s side with the perfect platform to build upon over the course of the busy festive season, where the Hammers face a variety of challenges – culminating in the FA Cup third round at the start of January.
Monday night’s draw handed West Ham an intriguing test as they will host in-form Championship side Birmingham City in a match that has plenty of subplots due to the history of the Blues with Hammers owners David Gold and David Sullivan.
The pair are unpopular from their time at St. Andrew’s and plenty of supporters are looking forward to having the opportunity to heap misery upon their former owners and we have gathered some of their reactions to the draw below.
