Danny Dyer trolled by Man United fans after overconfident pre-match prediction

Danny Dyer may have regretted his bold pre-match predictions by the time the final whistle blew at Upton Park last night.

The London-born Eastenders star was typically confident before his side kicked off against Manchester United in their FA Cup replay.

"It's going to be 2-0 West Ham, because we're the greatest team on the earth at the moment," Dyer said.

"Manchester United are finished, ta-ta! We're going to Wembley."

Unfortunately for Dyer, it is Manchester United who are going to Wembley, after beating the Hammers 2-1.

The cockney actor wasn’t very gracious in defeat.

And a host of United fans took great pleasure in winding him up further on Twitter.

Oh dear Danny, can't win ‘em all.
