West Ham were drawn against Leeds in the FA Cup third round last night and Crawley Town’s official Twitter account reacted brilliantly to the news.
The Hammers will welcome Leeds to the London Stadium at the start of January for the third round of the world’s oldest club competition.
The last thing that both David Moyes or Marcelo Bielsa would have wanted was a draw against a fellow Premier League side.
West Ham have been flying this season. We are currently sitting in fourth spot in the Premier League table, qualified for the last 16 of the Europa League and have a Carabao Cup quarter-final against Tottenham to look forward to later this month.
Leeds, meanwhile, have been struggling this season.
The West Yorkshire outfit are currently occupying 15th spot in the Premier League table. Bielsa’s side play some very attractive football though and the Hammers will be in for a tough afternoon on January 8th…or will we?
Crawley Town troll Leeds and send message to West Ham after FA Cup draw
The League Two outfit famously beat Leeds 3-0 in the FA Cup at the Broadfield Stadium back in January 2021.
And Crawley Town posted a tweet after West Ham were drawn against Leeds in the FA Cup:
You’ve gotta love the cheek from Crawley!
If we are at our best, we should be able to emulate the League Two side’s win over Leeds.
Much will depend on how many injuries West Ham have this time next month though. David Moyes will probably rest a few key players for the game.
But still, if Crawley can do it, then surely so can we!
