That’s all for today, goodbye!

United are through to the quarter-final of the competition, but they’ll have to wait until Thursday to find out who they’ll face in the next round. Next up for them is West Brom on Sunday. West Ham are out of the FA Cup and their focus can now turn back to the league and their match against Sheffield United.

It took United extra-time to beat West Ham 1-0 to reach the FA Cup quarter-final. The hosts had the better chances in the game, with Fabianski denying them with two good saves in normal time, but they finally broke the deadlock in the 97th minute.

112′ Odubeko, who was brought on during the second half, hasn’t been able to get involved and he’s being taken off for Lanzini.

110′ It’s patient play from West Ham as they try to work it forward from the back, but they’re struggling to get into the final third. Fredericks eventually floats a cross to the edge of the box, but it’s intercepted by Lindelof.

108′ Shaw squares the ball to Martial and continues his run through the middle to get the return pass. There’s too much on the throughball from the Frenchman though and it rolls straight into Fabianski’s gloves.

106′ United get the second half of extra-time underway!

United finally break the deadlock to lead 1-0 at half-time in extra-time. The goal was the only chance in the half for United and it came from West Ham failing to clear their lines. Rashford reacts quickest to get onto the loose ball and he touches it into McTominay’s path for him to drill it first-time into the bottom corner.

105′ + 1′ HALF-TIME: MANCHESTER UNITED 1-0 WEST HAM.

105′ West Ham are keeping the ball well at the moment, but all of their possession is in front of United, who have everyone sitting back to close down the space. Dawson tries to set Benrahma off down the right, but Maguire is across to nick it off him.

103′ McTominay has scored seven goals in his 30 appearances in all competitions this season, the same number he managed in his 84 other United matches prior to this campaign.

101′ Benrahma is getting into some good positions in the final third as he drops off Fred to pick up the ball. He plays a good throughball forward for Soucek, but he’s caught on his heels and Henderson comes off his line to collect it.

99′ West Ham have found a new wave of energy now as they break upfield in search of a quick response. Benrahma pulls away from Shaw to curl his cross into the six-yard box and Henderson punches it away for United.

97′ Soucek’s header loops up in the box and Rashford gets to it ahead of Dawson to touch it into McTominay’s path and set up the goal.

B. Williams

A. Wan-Bissaka

91′ There’s a double change for United before the kick-off with Shaw being brought on for Telles.

Both managers will want to see a much brighter performance in extra-time as neither will want to go to a penalty shoot-out. West Ham haven’t tested Henderson at all which Moyes will want to change, but they’ve been good at the back to shut out United and Solskjaer will want them to be more clinical.

It’s goalless at the end of 90 minutes and United and West Ham are going to extra-time. United created the best chances of the game with Fabianski being forced into two good saves, one from Lindelof in the first half and a second for Rashford after the break. West Ham improved in the second half with their only chance coming in stoppage time when Dawson flicked a header on from a corner that was blocked.

90′ + 3′ END OF 90 MINUTES: MANCHESTER UNITED 0-0 WEST HAM.

90′ + 2′ Noble curls a great corner into the box and Dawson rises highest to flick it on at the near post. Soucek is running onto it at the back and Wan-Bissaka makes a good block to stop him reaching it.

90′ United work it upfield well as Rashford switches it out to Telles, who has a lot of space down the left. He curls another cross into the box, but it’s too close to Fabianski, who holds onto it.

66′ Matic lifts the ball over the top of West Ham’s defenders to pick out Van de Beek’s run into the left of the box. He pulls it back from the byline towards Martial, but the offside flag has gone up against him.

64′ United are struggling to keep hold of the ball when they break into West Ham’s half at the moment and they’re giving it away sloppily. Fred plays it out to Telles, but his first touch sends it straight out of play.

62′ Lindelof has stayed down after being caught on the back of the head by Soucek when they both tried to get on the end of Frederick’s cross. It takes him a little while to get back to his feet, but he’s going to carry on without any treatment.

52′ Rashford picks the ball up near the halfway line and makes another driving run into the box. He has no one with him in support though and is eventually crowded off the ball by the West Ham defenders.

50′ West Ham have made a bright start to the second half as Johnson makes another good run down the left. He plays a low cross into the box which Matic misses, but Maguire steps forward to get it ahead of Yarmolenko.

48′ Yarmolenko drilled a low cross into the box and he’s stayed down holding his knee after challenging Lindelof for it. He’s gingerly getting back to his feet and he’s going to get some treatment on the sidelines.

46′ Diop also doesn’t come back out for the second half due to that head injury just before half-time and Fredericks is on for him.

46′ There’s a double change for West Ham at the break as Johnson comes on for Bowen.

Solskjaer will be pleased with his side’s performance so far, but they need to make a big improvement in front of goal after the break if they want to get something out of this match. As for West Ham, they struggled to get out of their half at times and Moyes will want them to get on the front foot more in the second half and create some chances.

It’s goalless at the break between Manchester United and West Ham. The hosts dominated possession in the first half, but only created one real clear cut chance when Lindelof forced Fabianski into a good save from a corner.

22′ Rashford cuts inside for the left and he decides to have a shot himself despite having support in the box. He tries to curl it towards the far post, but Dawson is there to make another block for West Ham.

20′ United are still dominating possession here and a pocket of space just opens up for Matic on the edge of the box. He decides to have a go from range but fires his shot high over the bar and into the stands.

18′ Aged 23 years and 101 days, Rashford tonight becomes the fourth-youngest player in Manchester United’s history to make 250 appearances for the club, behind only Norman Whiteside, George Best and Ryan Giggs.

16′ West Ham are finally able to make that change as Diop comes on for the injured Ogbonna.

15′ West Ham are currently playing with 10 men as Ogbonna isn’t able to come back on and they’re on the attack. Cresswell squares it to Yarmolenko, who turns past Lindelof to get a shot away, but it’s blocked by the defender.

8′ West Ham are being kept penned back in their own half as United continue to close them down high up the field. The visitors are keeping the ball well, but they just can’t find a way forward at the moment.

6′ It’s a good ball from Telles over the top to pick out Rashford’s run ahead of him down the left and he brings it down well. He’s quickly closed down by Coufal though and he can’t keep it in play.

4′ Greenwood closes Fornals down quickly to win the ball back and he drives forward into the box. He takes a heavy touch when he gets into the area though which gives Cresswell chance to clear the danger.

2′ West Ham have a free-kick in midfield and Noble curls a good ball into the far post. He’s looking for Yarmolenko, but Matic gets ahead of him and does enough to help see it out and avoid giving away a corner.

1′ Noble gets the game underway for West Ham!
