West Ham beat Derby County to book FA Cup trip to Old Trafford

West Ham had no problems getting over the line in their FA Cup fourth round clash at League One side Derby County. Both teams knew going into the game that the winner would face Manchester United at Old Trafford in the fifth round.

Jarrod Bowen opened the scoring for West Ham just 10 minutes into the game.

The Hammers doubled their lead on the 50th-minute mark, with Michail Antonio scored a header from Bowen’s deflected cross.

Derby were unable to find a response and that means David Moyes will need to prepare his players for an FA Cup trip to Old Trafford in the next round.

The Red Devils have already beaten Everton and Reading in the FA Cup this season and we will be expected to do the same against West Ham.
