Scott McTominay Secures a Late Winner for United

Following a barren draw at the regular 90-minutes of play between Man United and West Ham United, the Olegunar Soksaejer men have to wait on the informed Scott McTominay to make the difference.

West Ham go into today’s fixture having lost just once in their past 11 fixtures and are looking to progress to the sixth round for just the second time in ten years.

The hosts are also in fine form with just two defeats in their past 17 outings. The 12 time FA Cup winners progressed to the semi-finals last year before eventually losing to Chelsea 3-1 at Wembley.

The two sides faced each other in the league in December with Man United winning 3-1 at the London Stadium. Over the past six games, The Hammers have an even record with the Red Devils, two wins, two draws and two defeats.

However, West Ham’s last win at Old Trafford was 14-years-ago when a Carlos Tevez effort was enough to seal the victory and with it survival in the Premier League.

At the start of the second 45th-minutes, it looks like five at the back for now with Coufal and Cresswell in as centre-backs and Fredericks and Johnson as wing-backs.

Yet, the home-side dominated possession of the game until the extra time.

Incredibly, Rice gave the ball away and Man United counter attack as substitute Scott McTominay prods home to open the scoring in first-half of the extra time to register the only goal of the game.
