Victor Moses says his friendship with the Liverpool players won’t count for anything when his West Ham side faces the Reds at Anfield in fourth round FA Cup tie later on Saturday.
The 25-year old spend the 2013/14 season on loan at Anfield from Chelsea, and while he admits he still have friends among Liverpool’s playing squad and it will be nice to return to Anfield, he says it will count for nothing when the game gets underway.
“It will be nice for me to go back to Liverpool and it will be my first time back at Anfield since my loan spell there,” he said.
The Nigeria international missed the trip to Anfield earlier in the season as he was yet to complete his move to the Hammers at the time, but says it was a great win for West Ham. He added that he will have a friendly reunion with the Liverpool players, but only after the game.
“When we played up there earlier in the season, it was just before I signed for the club but it was a great victory for the Club.
“I have still got a lot of good friends up there like Coutinho, Sakho, Sturridge but I will have to put that friendship to one side when we face them.
“After the game we can shake hands, but the football comes first and we will be looking to reach the next round.
“It is not out of the question that we could win the FA Cup and finish in the top four this season.”
