'It's a one-off game'

Danny Gabbidon believes West Ham United can upset the odds and knock Arsenal out of the FA Cup on Sunday.

The Wales defender - the Hammers sole survivor from the team that reached the final in 2006 - has told the official matchday programme Gianfranco Zola's side can silence the Gunners. The 30-year-old, who is battling to overcome a hamstring injury suffered last month, said the Hammers have the talent to overcome Arsene Wenger's Barclays Premier League title-chasers.

"We were obviously hoping we'd get an easier team, but it's a good game. Arsenal are a top quality team, and to win the cup you have to knock the best teams out, so why not start straight away with Arsenal?

"It's a one-off game, so we go out there and we'll try our best and you never know what could happen. That's what the cup is all about so we're looking forward to it."

In a revealing interview, Gabbidon talks about the 2006 final, when Liverpool's Steven Gerrard broke Hammers hearts with a last-gasp equaliser before the Reds triumphed in a penalty shootout. The 2005/06 Hammer of the Year also expresses his sympathy for Dean Ashton following the England striker's retirement through injury.

Sunday's matchday programme is packed with exclusive features, including interviews with West Ham's 1975 and 1980 FA Cup-winning captain Billy Bonds, former Arsenal, West Ham and Republic of Ireland midfielder Liam Brady and ex-Gunners, Hammers and England left-back Nigel Winterburn.
