FA Cup: West Ham To Face Man Utd After Triumph Over Derby County

FA Cup: West Ham To Face Man Utd After Triumph Over Derby Co

Bowen and Antonio

West Ham United secured a trip to Old Trafford for a fifth-round match against Manchester United in the FA Cup with a 2-0 win over Derby County on Monday.

Goals from Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio secured the victory for David Moyes' men who had not been at their personal best this season.

Despite being close to the relegation zone in the Premier League, West Ham were never seriously threatened by Derby, who are currently challenging for promotion to League One.

West Ham manager Moyes made six changes to his lineup following a crucial victory over Premier League rivals Everton. The win was important for Moyes, who is under pressure to maintain his team's Premier League survival, but it is the FA Cup that remains his top priority. The Hammers have not reached the final since 2006 and are hoping to end this drought.

Jarrod Bowen was one of the established stars who played in the match against Derby. The 26-year-old has been struggling this season but showed signs of returning to his best form, netting two goals in recent games. Michail Antonio also shone, scoring the second goal in the 50th minute after a deflected cross from Bowen.

Antonio's future at West Ham is uncertain, with reports of interest from Everton, but Moyes has insisted he will not be sold before the transfer deadline. With Gianluca Scamacca and Danny Ings injured, Antonio is West Ham's only fit senior striker.

The FA Cup draw was made earlier on the same day and Wrexham will host Tottenham if they can beat Sheffield United in a fourth-round replay.

Manchester City, who defeated Premier League leaders Arsenal, will travel to second-tier Bristol City. Brighton will head to Stoke after knocking out Liverpool in a dramatic 2-1 victory.
