Man Utd vs West Ham

Manchester United turn their attention from lifting one cup to progressing in another this week as they host West Ham in the FA Cup fifth round.

Erik ten Hag’s United were victorious over Newcastle at Wembley in the Carabao Cup final at the weekend, ending a six-year trophy drought in the process, but will be hungry for more.

In the Hammers, they face a side that has struggled in the Premier League this season but has found respite in both domestic and European cup competitions. David Moyes’ side have beaten Brentford and Derby, both away from home, to reach this stage of the FA Cup.

Manchester United, meanwhile, have won against Everton and Reading, both at home, both 3-1.

Man Utd team news

Anthony Martial remains out for United, with Luke Shaw and Fred also considered doubts that will be monitored ahead of the game. Christian Eriksen and Donny van de Beek are long-term absentees.

(4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Martinez, Varane, Malacia; Casemiro, Sabitzer; Sancho, Fernandes, Rashford; Weghorst.

West Ham team news

Lukasz Fabianski and Vladimir Coufal have been ruled out of this one with a fractured cheekbone and heel injury respectively. Meanwhile, Danny Ings is cup-tied after playing for former club Aston Villa in an earlier round of the competition.

(3-5-2): Areola; Ogbonna, Zouma, Aguerd; Johnson, Downes, Rice, Soucek, Emerson; Bowen, Antonio.

Manchester United have all the momentum right now and even a West Ham side that finished February with an emphatic 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest – only their second Premier League victory since October, is realistically no match for them.

This promises to be a triumphant homecoming to Manchester for Ten Hag’s team after the weekend exploits in London and a place in the FA Cup quarter-finals beckons.

A single Marcus Rashford goal decided it when these teams met at Old Trafford in the Premier League in October, but the margin of victory is likely to be bigger now.

Prediction: Man Utd 3-0 West Ham
