    Tie of the round

    Manchester United's huge clash with West Ham has been considered the tie of the round and Red Devils supporters will be hoping that their side can build on the Carabao Cup win.

    Casemiro and Marcus Rashford's first-half strikes were enough to see United end their six-year trophy drought against Newcastle.

    And they are the favourites to progress to the next round of the FA Cup with West Ham having a torrid season.

    However, the Hammers will be oozing with confidence as they go in to this game fresh from a 4-0 pummelling on Nottingham Forest.

    So this tie is set up to be fascinating with both teams pulling off big wins.
