West Ham United host Sheffield United at the London Stadium on Monday night as the Hammers look to get back to winning ways after narrowly losing to Manchester United in the fifth round of the FA Cup, on Tuesday night.

The Blades, on the other hand, reached the quarter-final during the week, beating Bristol City 2-1. Billy Sharp scored a penalty in the second half sending his boyhood club through to the next round. 

West Ham most recently lost to Man United on Tuesday night. The Hammers were lucky to go into half time without conceding after a very poor first half.  

The second half was completely different, as a switch to a back five, transformed the Hammers side. However, the East Londoners could not break the deadlock to go ahead. 

The 90 minutes were up and both teams headed for extra time. Scott McTominay put the hosts ahead after Marcus Rashford flicked the ball into the midfielders path. A first time hit saw the ball bulge the back of the net and send United into the quarter-final.

Ones to watch

West Ham United - Jesse Lingard 

After the perfect debut, the attacking midfielder will look to build on his first Premier League start. The 28-year old played superb against Villa, being the standout player on the pitch. Settling in very quickly, Lingard scored two goals to help secure the three points for the Hammers.

Adding a different attacking option for Moyes, Lingard plays perfectly with his teammates, especially when playing quick flowing football with Benrahma and Michail Antonio. Lingard's two goals were scored with both his left and right foot.

Sheffield United - Jayden Bogle

The 20-year-old joined the Blades in the summer from Derby County and has stood out in recent performances. Bogle has three times since joining the Blades - twice in the Premier League and once in the FA Cup.

The defender is fast becoming a fan favourite at the club and has shown he can play full back on both sides, especially in a back five.
