West Ham United hero Peter Brabrook believes his old side can upset the odds and beat Manchester United on Sunday.
If anyone knows how to get one over the Red Devils, it is the former Hammers winger, who tasted victory on five of the nine occasions he lined up against them. The most famous of those successes came in March 1964, when Brabrook was part of the West Ham United side that beat Manchester United 3-1 at Hillsborough to reach the FA Cup final.
Some 45 years on and the Greenwich-born player believes his former club can recreate history this weekend - ending Sir Alex Ferguson's team's run of 12 consecutive Premier League clean sheets in the process.
"To be fair to Gianfranco Zola and Steve Clarke, they have done really well since they came in and the team is playing good football. They have got the players organised and teams are finding it hard to break us down and score against us at the moment.
"Full marks to both of them because we have drawn with Liverpool, Chelsea and now Arsenal away from home and I would not rule us out getting a result against Manchester United on Sunday. We normally do well against them at home and have beaten them at the Boleyn Ground the last two seasons. The way we're playing, I would not be surprised if we did it again."
Brabrook, who roomed with Manchester United star Sir Bobby Charlton during England's trip to the 1958 World Cup in Sweden, is hoping to be at the stadium on Sunday to meet his former team-mate and honour the memory of ex-West Ham United and England legend Bobby Moore, who he lined up alongside as the Hammers lifted the FA Cup in 1964 and European Cup Winners' Cup a year later.
Sunday's match will see the club raise the profile of the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK, the charity founded following the death of England's 1966 World Cup-winning captain. Moore, who made his debut against Manchester United on 8 September 1958, died after battling bowel cancer in February 1993.
