19:06 - Hello everyone and welcome to VAVEL's live coverage of the EFL clash between Manchester United and West Ham United
The Hammers couldn’t mark the last cup game at the Boleyn Ground with a trip to Wembley however, with goals Marcus Rashford and Fellaini cancelling out James Tomkins consolation with the 2-1 win, with Louis Van Gaal's side going on to win their first FA Cup in 12 years.
It was only last season that they clashed in the last eight of the FA Cup, with a late goal from Martial sending it to a replay at Upton Park after Dimitri Payet's excellent opener.
Sunday's clash ended in a draw, but the last time these two side's met in a cup competition it was a different story.
Andy Carroll is edging close and closer to full fitness, but it is expected that the striker will be saved for Saturday’s visit of Arsenal, while Winston Reid will available again after serving his one-match ban.
Sakho’s glorious return to the first-team on Sunday was sadly cut short, and is expected to sit out of this clash with a hamstring injury.
The clash could also see the return of Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial from injury, but Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling will both be out.
There will be a big blow to Mourinho’s starting XI, with the absence of midfield duo Marouane Fellaini and Paul Pogba. Both players picked up their fifth yellow cards of the season, with the lack of fitness from Michael Carrick it could see the return to first-team action for Bastian Schweinsteiger.
The EFL Cup is where the Hammers have shone this season, and they got to this round with some style. Goals from Cheikhou Kouyate and Edimilson Fernandes canceled out Gary Cahill’s late effort to give them a famous win over Chelsea, and Bilic will be hoping that they can claim another scalp.
They headed to Old Trafford on Sunday very low on confidence, after the previous weekend’s 3-2 defeat to bitter rival’s Tottenham Hotpsur. However headed back to the London Stadium with their heads held high after a decent performance.
Like United it has been the wayward start to the season for Bilic’s men, wallowing just one point above the relegation zone in 16th.
West Ham will head back north full of confidence after Sunday’s stalemate as they look to continue the journey to get their season back on track.
United secured their place in the last eight, when they took on bitter rivals Manchester City in the last round. It was a single goal from Juan Mata that secured their place, and Mourinho wouldn’t turn down the opportunity of a similar result this time around.
It didn’t get any better on Sunday, when Diafra Sakho opened the scoring after two minutes but Zlatan Ibrahimovic leveled things up in the 21st minute. United had a handful of chances with Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard,Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Ibrahimovic all coming close.
Before Sunday’s visit of Slaven Bilic’s side, scoring just five goals in their last six matches, scoring just two goals at home in that time.
It has been a so-so start to the Jose Mourinho’s tenure at Old Trafford, with the Red Devils specifically suffering to perform at the Theatre of Dreams over the last few weeks.
Tonight's clash will be second clash between these two sides in the last four days, and both will hoping that they can get one over on other on this occasion.
