Manchester United and West Ham United go head-to-head at Old Trafford in the FA Cup fifth round for a place in the quarter-finals on Tuesday at 7:30pm (UK time).
The Red Devils have been riding high in the Premier League this season and that impressive form has filtered through to the FA Cup, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer masterminding a win over Liverpool in the previous round to reach this stage.
West Ham likewise are enjoying a hot streak in the English top-flight under David Moyes, and the former Man Utd boss will now look to pull off an upset at his old stomping ground to keep the optimism high in E20.
Man Utd XI: Henderson; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; Fred, Matic; Rashford, Van de Beek, Greenwood; Martial.
West Ham XI: Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Rice, Noble, Soucek; Fornals, Bowen, Yarmolenko.

Man Utd vs West Ham build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
It has not been an easy route to the last-16 for Solskjaer, who oversaw an impressive 3-2 win against reigning Premier League champions Liverpool in the fourth round, which followed on from a tricky 1-0 triumph over Championship-promotion hopefuls Watford just before that.
The Norwegian now faces another difficult match against high-flying West Ham, who have taken down Stockport County and Doncaster Rovers to reach this stage. The Hammers have not tasted FA Cup glory since 1980, when John Lyall’s side beat Arsenal 1-0 in the Wembley showpiece, subsequently becoming the last team to lift the trophy outside the top flight.
- Man Utd (vs Everton): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Pogba*, Fernandes, Rashford, Greenwood; Cavani.
- West Ham (vs Fulham): Fabianski; Coufal, Dawson, Ogbonna, Cresswell; Soucek*, Rice, Lingard*, Bowen, Benrahma; Antonio.
Paul Pogba, who netted a stunning goal at the London Stadium earlier this season, was forced off in the first half of the Everton draw with a thigh injury and is expected to sit this one out. The Frenchman joins Phil Jones and Eric Bailly — who has a knock — on the sidelines.
West Ham meanwhile have appealed against Tomas Soucek’s controversial red card at Fulham which, as it stands, will see the Czech midfielder miss three domestic games, starting on Tuesday against Man Utd. Michail Antonio is also a minor doubt after looking visibly fatigued at Craven Cottage, while Arthur Masuaku is a long-term absentee, having not yet overcome a knee injury.
Man Utd loanee Jesse Lingard is also cup-tied for the Hammers.

Players to watch:
Man Utd: There are echoes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s stint at Old Trafford in Edinson Cavani‘s recent showings. Both players relocated to the North West of England on a free transfer after a stint in Paris, and as it stands, both strikers have made a vivid impression at Old Trafford. Cavani, 33, may not have joined the club in his prime with a lofty price tag on his shoulders, but he has proven a very astute piece of business and continues to showcase his instinctive presence in the box. Moyes is likely to rotate his backline, and if given the nod by Solskjaer, the vastly experienced Cavani could capitalise on an unfamiliar rearguard by the visitors. The Uruguayan started against Liverpool in the round prior, and despite not scoring, he played a pivotal role in keeping Jurgen Klopp’s defence on their toes and unsteady.
West Ham: Having started the last two games on the bench, largely owing to the introduction of Jesse Lingard — who is cup-tied here — Pablo Fornals is likely to be restored to Moyes’ XI, and that will come as welcome news to West Ham fans. Few players have survived in Moyes’ first team from the Manuel Pellegrini era, but Fornals is one of the Chilean’s exceptionally small success stories. This season, the Spaniard has proven a diligent and hard-working cog in the Scot’s well-oiled system which, coupled with his creative tendencies, makes him a very unique and threatening midfielder. He has been unlucky to occupy a bench role in the last two matches, against Aston Villa and Fulham, but he should be given a starting berth at Old Trafford, and he will be relishing the chance to shine in the absence of Lingard.
