Should West Ham get past Manchester Utd in their FA Cup replay sometime next month a mouth-watering tie against Everton at Wembley awaits.
The Merseyside club have had an erratic season, with most commentators suggesting they are underperforming in relation to their squad strength. But Roberto Martinez has a good cup record and his team rose to the occasion to see off a feisty Chelsea team.
West Ham co-chairman David Gold said: “I am sure Everton would not want to face us if we get through, especially after our impressive comeback at Goodison Park.
“We are still only 90 minutes away from playing at Wembley. I am sure a lot of fans would have taken this situation at the start of the season that we would be sitting fifth in the table and facing Manchester United in an FA Cup quarter-final replay.
“But we are now dreaming of bigger things and the difference is we have won the right to dream.”
Manager Slaven Bilic says he “fancies” West Ham to beat the Red Devils in east London.
He said: “Manchester United are a different team when they play away and don’t have that confidence,” he said.
Speaking on BT Sport, former Red Devil Paul Scholes said: "I still have to make West Ham slight favourites going to their place.
"That final bit of quality was just missing but I thought they played alright. They controlled possession like they usually do at Old Trafford and I'm certain the fair result was definitely the draw."
Meanwhile, West Ham go to Stamford Bridge on Saturday to play a troubled Chelsea side that will be without Eden Hazard through injury.
West Ham are expected to confirm that the permanent signing of Manuel Lanzini shortly, in a reported £7.4million deal.
The midfielder has been on loan from Al Jazira but the club has made no secret of its aspiration to make him a full-time Hammer.
Norway midfielder Havard Nordtveit is also joining on a free transfer from Borussia Moenchengladbach next season.
