West Ham United manager Slaven Bilic has insisted that he was "not happy" when Liverpool were drawn against the Hammers in the FA Cup fourth round.
Bilic's side will be looking for a third win against Liverpool this season tomorrow evening after completing their first league double over the Reds for 52 years.
Despite their good record against the Merseyside club, Bilic would have preferred to be facing someone other than the seven-time champions in the last 32.
"I was not happy with the draw," Bilic told reporters. "We were on the coach to Bournemouth when we heard, and I didn't think 'yes, we've beaten them twice'. I thought 'it's Liverpool'.
"It is one of the most difficult games we could have got. But we are confident, we beat them twice and have the recent memory of beating them, and we know what to do in the game to have a chance of beating them again.
"We are very ambitious for the FA Cup and we are looking forward to the game."
West Ham also sit a place and two points above Liverpool in the Premier League table after 23 games of the season.
