The game has been scheduled for a 12.30 kick-off in a bid to stop the fans drinking themselves into a fury before the whistle blows.
And that’s a good idea in my book having witnessed the “special” atmosphere at the last meeting in the Carling Cup in 2009.
Green Street was a battleground that night and the match was marred by some of the fattest pitch invaders seen at Upton Park since Neil Ruddock was turning out for us.
The bad feeling goes back to the days when the Millwall side broke a strike on the Docks.
I’m not sure the history matters much to most these days but the rivalry is as strong as ever and it’s a real reminder that football does matter to local communities even in these Premiership-obsessed times.
But let’s not get distracted by off-the-pitch shenanigans and concentrate on the match itself where West Ham look great value at 13/10 with Paddy Power.
Big Sam has got his tactics spot-on away from home where the Hammers have won three out of three scoring nine goals and only conceding one.
Millwall are unbeaten at home but have drawn two out of three and I fancy an improving West Ham side to have too much for them and win with a bit in hand.
Back to the heady heights of the Premier League and I make no apology for going back to the winning well again and picking a Manchester double.
United host Chelsea while City are away at Fulham and I fancy both to win in a double which pays a shade under 2/1.
Chelsea are an unheard of price of 10/3 but they aren’t really clicking under the new boss while Sir Alex’s side are blitzing everyone in their path.
City are also on fire in the league so we’ll keep pairing those two any time we can get near the two to one mark for the double.
