Full-time: Manchester United 4-1 West Ham United

Jose Mourinho's side progress to the semi-finals.

Goal! Manchester United 4-1 West Ham United (Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 90+)

With just minutes left here, Bastian Schweinsteiger comes off the bench to an enormous ovation. He replaces Anthony Martial.

United have scored a brilliant third and that should be enough to see them through to the semi-finals. Ibrahimovic is at the centre of it, playing an absolutely superb reverse pass down the right for Valencia. West Ham's backline is caught out and the Ecuador international has the simple task of teeing up Martial who sweeps home for his second of the game.

United have their lead back! Dimitri Payet tries to play the ball out from the back in a dangerous position and West Ham pay the price. Valencia brilliantly backheels the ball into the path of the onrushing Mkhitaryan, whose pass into the box is perfect. It's right into the path of Martial who sweeps a superb effort into the top corner.

We are back underway for the second half and, as it was four days ago, we are tied at 1-1.

Xhaka's connection is clean, but he doesn't get the direction on the shot to trouble Xhaka.

Arsenal have a free kick a good 30 yards out and Granit Xhaka is standing menacingly over it...

Half-time: Manchester United 1-1 West Ham United

West Ham have offered nothing in this game... until now. Dimitri Payet registers their first shot of the game and David de Gea spills it, inviting Ashley Fletcher to pounce and convert the rebound. It's a bad mistake from the United goalkeeper.

Valencia and Mkhitaryan combine brilliantly down the right before freeing Ibrahimovic, who tries to slide a ball across goal from Martial. The move breaks down, but United are looking superb in these opening 10 minutes.

United take the lead! Sublime buildup play as Rooney feeds Mkhitaryan who cheekily back heels into the path of Ibrahimovic breaking inside the box. He takes the ball under his spell and slots it coolly past Adrian.

And United get us underway.

Ashley Fletcher starts against his former club tonight with Sofiane Feghouli also taking a spot in the starting XI. Adrian return in goal but there is no place for Andy Carroll in the starting XI.

Jose Mourinho has selected a very strong XI tonight. He makes five changes with Luke Shaw, Michael Carrick, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney all starting, with Paul Pogba suspended. Zlatan Ibrahimovic retains his place up front while Bastian Schweinsteiger again takes up a spot on the bench.

West Ham team to face Manchester United: Adrian, Ogbonna, Reid, Kouyate, Cresswell, Feghouli, Obiang, Fernandes, Payet, Antonio, Fletcher.

Manchester United team to face West Ham: De Gea, Valencia, Rojo, Jones, Shaw, Carrick, Herrera, Mkhitaryan, Rooney, Martial, Ibrahimovic

Subs: Romero, Blind, Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger, Lingard, Mata, Rashford

What are the chances of Bastian Schweinsteiger making an appearance tonight, then? The former Germany international made the match day squad for the first time this season on Sunday. Not too long ago, all signs suggested his career at Old Trafford was over, but the 32-year-old could force his way back in tonight with both Pogba and Fellaini unavailable.

The most pressing piece of pre-match news for Manchester United however concerns their manager. For the second time this season, Jose Mourinho will serve a touchline ban having accepted a charge of improper conduct after booting a water bottle in frustration in Sunday's Premier League clash between these two sides. Read the full story here.

Team news: West Ham

Diafra Sakho, having not played this season due to a back injury, returned with a flourish on Sunday, scoring two minutes into his return game. A six-week layoff awaits the striker, however, having picked up a hamstring problem.

That could pave the way for Andy Carroll's return. The 27-year-old has not played a domestic game all season due to a knee injury but could be brought in tonight. Winston Reid meanwhile is available again after suspension.

Team news: Manchester United

Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini are both suspended tonight after picking up their fifth bookings of the season on Sunday. They will be the only enforced changes from Sunday's team but with trips to Everton and then Zorya in the Europa League awaiting, Jose Mourinho could choose tonight to ring in a few changes. Michael Carrick, who was left out of the Premier League clash with his old club on Sunday, could return.

Four days on from their last meeting, Manchester United and West Ham United meet again tonight. Six years ago to the day, these two also met in the same stage of this competition, a night marked by the rarest of footballing feats; a brace from Jonathan Spector. The former Old Trafford youngster struck twice for the Hammers on a humiliating night for Sir Alex Ferguson as West Ham, then managed by Avram Grant and sat bottom of the Premier League, sealed a huge 4-0 win at Upton Park.

Gabriel Obertan and Bebe led the attack for United that evening while Jonny Evans provided perhaps his worst ever performance of his professional career.

A similar score-line seems slightly unlikely tonight but as we saw on Sunday afternoon, Jose Mourinho's side are still more than capable of shooting themselves in the foot. If they are to improve on that performance tonight, United will have to do it without the presence of their fearless leader prowling the touchline. Hours before kick-off, the FA confirmed Mourinho will serve an immediate one-match ban for that vicious assault on a water bottle.
