Soccer – Fletcher anticipates tough test

West Ham United striker Ashley Fletcher is expecting a tough FA Cup third round clash when Slaven Bilic's side take on Manchester City. The 21-year-old joined the Hammers from Manchester United last summer and scored against his former club in the EFL Cup five weeks ago. He hopes to feature in Friday's match, saying: "I'm a Manchester lad and, coming from round there, I know what it's like as an ex-Manchester United player to play against City. "It's going to be a tough game against them. They're obviously one of the best teams in the league so we're expecting a tough match. They'll be bang at it." Fletcher is available at 12/5 with bet365 to score at any time against Manchester City while West Ham can be backed at 16/1 to win the tie from behind.
