The Irons faithful have experienced both cup highs and cup lows in equal measure over the last 12 months, witnessing their beloved outfit conquer the third tier of European football before last month’s humiliating 5-1 EFL Cup defeat at the hands of Liverpool in the quarter-finals.

However, David Moyes’s men have kept the back door firmly bolted shut since that Anfield horror show, ending a memorable 2023 with back-to-back 2-0 wins over Manchester United and Arsenal before going in search of a third successive win when Brighton came to the capital.

The Hammers’ victorious streak was brought to an abrupt end in that goalless stalemate, though, and Moyes was indebted to on-song goalkeeper Alphonse Areola for denying the Seagulls all three points at the London Stadium, although that draw was enough to keep West Ham in a respectable sixth place in the table.

Should West Ham’s Premier League avenue to European football be closed off in the coming months, another shot at continental qualification could present itself in the form of a fourth FA Cup triumph, a competition which the Irons won for the third and most recent time in 1980.

Beaten finalists in a classic 2006 final with Liverpool, West Ham have made it past the third round in each of the last six editions since losing to Manchester City at this stage in 2016-17, and they have conceded just one goal in their last five FA Cup home contests

Inside the first two minutes of second-half injury time, Millwall skipper Shaun Hutchinson – a centre-back by trade – produced the turn and finish of a seasoned striker to nick a narrow win for Joe Edwards’s team, ending the Robins’ four-game unbeaten run in the Championship.

Taking 10 points from a possible 12 represented a magnificent end to 2023 for Bristol City, but failure to get the better of Millwall leaves Manning’s team in an unremarkable 11th place in the table, albeit just four points adrift of the coveted playoff places.

Championship matters now take a back seat as Manning returns to his old stomping ground – the 38-year-old spent a few years as head coach of West Ham’s Under-21s before departing in 2019 – but Bristol City have followed a peculiar pattern in the FA Cup in recent years, alternating between third-round losses and third-round wins ever since the 2013-14 season.

Having progressed as far as round five in 2022-23, the omens are not promising for the Robins if that pattern is to be continued against West Ham, who overcame Bristol City in the fourth round of the 2014-15 tournament thanks to a Diafra Sakho effor
