West Ham striker Zavon Hines is not concerned by the threat posed by champions Manchester United who visit Upton Park this Saturday.
The lively Jamaican-born forward has been in good form for the Hammers and when asked about testing himself against the likes of Nemandja Vidic, refused to be over-awed by reputation.
"Definitely (I am looking forward to the game), it doesn't matter who you play," he said.
"When Arsenal came here we were really up for it and came back from 2-0 down. I'm happy to take on anyone."
And the striker is confident in his own abilities as well as that of his team-mates.
"Every time I come on I feel happy because not a lot of people get into my position," smiled the 20-year-old.
"Playing for West Ham is a big thing for me and every time I play I get more confidence."
His self-belief would have been increased even further if he scored against Burnley.
But his chance was denied by Stephen Caldwell, who pulled the striker down when through on goal, before seeing red for the challenge.
"Yeah, (it would have been nice to have been able to shoot), as a striker I always want to score and when you score you get a lot more confidence," he said.
