"I think the FA Cup is a very important trophy, a good cup, the whole country plays it, so of course for any manager it is always handsome to win".

Nasri has been out of the game for the best part of 12 months after being handed a doping ban after he received an intravenous drip of water containing nutrients.

'You never forget. Samir is a very technical player and I am sure he will play in the same way as he did before.

'He knows that this is revenge for him, ' Pellegrini continued. "I am sure he will make a difference". I trust in him a lot. 'He is motivated, working hard and he has a lot of quality.

'I don't want to talk about whether it was his fault or not his fault (that he was banned for doping).

The MTA has committed to four public meetings on the new plan in Manhattan and Brooklyn, according to a release from Brewer's office.

Pellegrini also used Saturday's encounter to hand Samir Nasri, signed as a free agent following a successful trial at the club, a debut, and was impressed by the playmaker's 32-minute display. "He is a player whose performances will improve with every minute he plays because he is a top player".

'One of the reasons we won the title was because of him.

Arnautovic scored West Ham's second-minute opener at London Stadium, but went off injured 18 minutes later - although he seemed to dispute the decision to take him off as he exited the field. He is just 31 years old so he can play four or five years more without any problems. But mentally, he is another player with a lot of experience. I trust in him'.

And reports indicate Perez might be moved on before the end of the January window in order to make room for another striker.

West Ham, meanwhile, are believed to be happy to sell Andy Carroll now that he has entered the final six months of his contract.
