Reid’s late winner against Sunderland on Saturday was the perfect boost for West Ham ahead of the home fourth-round tie against their West London rivals and the New Zealand international admits the Premier League defeat by Chelsea earlier this season still rankles with him.
“It is a massive game for us,” said Reid. “We needed the boost of a win over Sunderland and now we can go into the game really looking forward to it.
“We conceded a goal at their place late in the Premier League game, so it would be nice to get some revenge. A cup run would be good. It was a disappointment for us to go out of the Europa League so early.”
