    What a finish. West Ham looked to have won it as they defended for their lives in the game's closing stages, only for that man Van Persie to strike and secure a replay for his side.

  • 90'

    And there goes the full-time whistle. A replay at Old Trafford then.

  • 90'

    Carlton Cole clears Giggs' corner. It soon comes to Valencia but he can only blaze over.

  • 90'

    Buttner wins a corner off Collins.

  • 90'

    United are searching for a winner...

  • 90'

    Kagawa sends a ball across the area but fails to find a team-mate. Could have taken the shot on himself.

  • 90'

    Four minutes of injury time to be played.

  • 90'

    Giggs makes up for his earlier miss as he picks out Van Persie with a superb cross-field ball. The striker brings it down with a great touch before slotting past Jaaskelainen. Top goal.

  • 90'


  • 90'

    A real chance for United. Rafael picks out Giggs with a delightful ball but the midfielder can only head over. He should have hit the back of the net and Sir Alex Ferguson knows it.

  • 89'

    West Ham are doing very well to keep hold of the ball now. United are getting frustrated.

  • 88'

    West Ham break down the other end. Jarvis picks out Taylor who heads the ball across the face of goal. Nolan miskicks it while Carlton Cole gets a touch on it but can only send it just wide of the post.

  • 87'

    Valencia gets another cross into the box but West Ham head clear.

  • 87'

    United look short of ideas...

  • 86'

    Valencia makes his way down the right before sending a cross in but it is poor and goes out for the goal kick.

  • 84'

    Noble's free-kick is cleared as far as Collison on the edge of the box but he shoots well over. Should have done better.

  • 83'

    Vidic gets booked for a foul on Jarvis. The West Ham man did very well to win the free-kick in the corner for his side.

  • 83'

    Time is starting to tick for United and at the moment they do not really look like scoring.

  • 82'

    Taylor drills in a cross from the left but it is easy for De Gea to deal with.

  • 81'

    West Ham get it clear but only as far as Giggs who picks out Vidic. The United skipper heads it wide however.

  • 81'

    Demel concedes another corner with a poor header.

  • 80'

    Kagawa and Valencia combine. United win the corner.

  • 78'

    West Ham bring off Joe Cole, who receives a standing ovation. Taylor comes on in his place.

  • 78'

    United make another change as Giggs comes on for Smalling.

  • 77'

    The Upton Park faithful are starting to get a little nervous.

  • 77'

    United seeing all the ball at the moment but they cannot find a way past the wall that is West Ham's defence.

  • 76'

    Potts tries to send a ball into the box but Smalling is there to clear.

  • 75'

    Ryan Giggs looks like he might be making an appearance soon.

  • 74'

    West Ham are having to soak up a lot of United pressure at the moment. So far so good for the home side.

  • 73'

    West Ham make a change. Noble comes on for Diarra.

  • 72'

    A real chance for United as Buttner stands a cross into the box but Welbeck can only head over the bar from close range. Should have at least hit the target.

  • 71'

    Potts gets forward down the left for West Ham but he cannot keep control of the ball and it goes out for the goal kick.

  • 70'

    United probing West Ham's defence but having little luck getting past them.

  • 69'

    Van Persie nearly scores with his first touch but he can only send his header from Buttner's corner wide.

  • 68'

    Van Persie comes on for Hernandez for United, while Valencia replaces Scholes.

  • 67'

    Rafael tries to play in Welbeck with the pass but Demel makes an excellent interception.

  • 66'

    Joe Cole has had to have some treatment for a nose bleed. He is OK to play on now.

  • 65'

    United preparing some substitutions it seems.

  • 64'

    Scholes tries to play a cross-field ball to Smalling but it goes out for a goal kick.

  • 64'

    Remember, United have Van Persie on the bench to call upon.

  • 63'

    What have United got in response now? They have seen plenty of the ball in this half but have lacked any real penetration.

  • 62'

    So United fall behind for the first time in the game. Are they going to come back once again?

  • 60'

    That is where West Ham have been most dangerous today, when Joe Cole has been sending balls into the box. United have struggled with his deliveries all game.

  • 59'

  • 59'

    Nearly identical to the first goal. Joe Cole with a fine delivery into the box and Collins heads home leaving De Gea with no chance.

  • 59'


  • 59'

    Smalling heads clear Collion's corner.

  • 59'

    West Ham win a corner...

  • 58'

    The game is starting to become a little more stretched now.

  • 58'

    United break down the other end through Kagawa but his shot is blocked by Tomkins.

  • 57'

    Joe Cole gets to the byline and sends in a fine cross to Carlton Cole who brings out a great save from De Gea to deny his header. That is better from the Hammers.

  • 56'

    Remember, the draw for the next round of the FA Cup is tomorrow at 1530GMT.

  • 55'

    Collison has taken a ball to the face from Rafael and is in a bit of pain currently.

  • 55'

    West Ham need to get hold of the ball and test the United defence like they were doing in the first half.

  • 54'

    Cleverley tries to pick out Welbeck with a pass but it is poor, leaving the striker with no chance of getting on the end of it.

  • 53'

    United enjoying a healthy spell of possession at the moment...

  • 52'

    Smalling gets a cross in from the right but Potts clears. Smalling soon sends another ball into the box but Welbeck is unable to bring it under control.

  • 51'

    United patiently knocking the ball around at the moment.

  • 50'

    Demel sends a ball in from the right. Tomkins gets his head on it but it is easy for De Gea to claim.

  • 48'

    Welbeck does well to play in Rafael down the right. The Brazilian tees up Cleverley on the edge of the box but he sends it over the bar. That was a real chance there.

  • 47'

    United play it around the box before Rafael takes aim from the edge of the box but it canons straight back off a defender.

  • 46'

    Joe Cole has an early effort at goal from distance but he sends it well over.

  • 46'

    And West Ham get the second half underway...


    James Collins celebrates his equaliser.


    United, who have seen most of the ball, took an early lead before West Ham, who have looked increasingly dangerous as the game has gone on, clawed the scores level. The game is finely poised for an exciting second half. Could go either way.

  • 45'

    And there goes the half-time whistle.

  • 45'

    Joe Cole fizzes a great ball into the box but Vidic gets a vital header in to clear the danger.

    West Ham are knocking the ball around nicely now.

  • 45'

    Two minutes of injury time to be played.

  • 45'

    Rafael takes a tumble on the edge of the box but the free-kick has strangely gone the other way.

  • 44'

    Both sides' performance levels seemed to have dropped a little over the last five minutes or so.

  • 44'

    Vaz Te sends another effort well over the bar. This time on the volley from just inside the area.

  • 42'

    The game is stopped as Vaz Te puts his boot back on!

  • 38'

    Collison goes into the book for a late challenge on Rafael.

  • 36'

    West Ham win another corner...

  • 34'

    Welbeck tees up Hernandez on the edge of the box but the Mexican blazes his strike well over the bar.

    West Ham win another free-kick in a dangerous position. United need to stop giving them away.

    Diarra dispossesses Kagawa before firing an effort at goal but it was always rising.

  • 27'

    Demel does well to get forward down the right but his cross is just too long for Carlton Cole in the middle. West Ham soon win a corner.
