West Ham head coach Paul Konchesky has called on his players to treat their clash against Manchester United this weekend like any other fixture.
The Hammers will be playing in front of a huge crowd at Old Trafford, which is something that the players won’t be used to, but Konchesky hopes that his team can play their own game and pull off an upset:
“When you see the stadium, it’s a big stadium and it’s an enjoyable place to play. That won’t be any different on Saturday for us and for our players. We’re expecting a big crowd, which is fantastic for the game, and hopefully, we can put on a show and upset them.”
West Ham are not heading into the game in the greatest of form. Konchesky’s side have not won since the 2-0 win over Wolves in the Women’s FA Cup back in late January.
Since then, they have drawn versus Arsenal, been thrashed 7-0 by Chelsea in the Continental Cup, lost on penalties to Aston Villa in the FA Cup, and suffered two further defeats in the WSL.
In contrast, their opponents on Saturday have lost just once in 14 matches, but that loss was their last league fixture against Chelsea.
