Manchester United take on West Ham United in the quarter-final of the 2015/16 FA Cup clash at Old Trafford on 13 March.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 4pm GMT. Live coverage is on BT Sports 2. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


United come into this fixture after a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool in the first leg of the Europa League clash at Anfield. They have lost their last two fixtures and failed to score in the matches as well.

Louis van Gaal is under pressure at Old Trafford after the manner in which his side lost to their arch-rivals. They have the advantage of playing at home in the FA Cup and a victory will help them make it to Wembley for the semi-final.

Meanwhile, West Ham enter this tie after coming from behind to seal a dramatic 3-2 victory over Everton. The Hammers were trailing by two goals until the final quarter of the game, but were successful in walking away from Goodison Park with three points.

Slaven Bilic's side knocked out Liverpool from the FA Cup and they have set their sights on United now. West Ham are on an unbeaten run in the last six matches played in all competitions and have lost only once in 10 fixtures.

What manager says

Louis van Gaal: "It is not good enough when you think you want to be champions or if you want to win the FA Cup or the Europa League – but it is still possible. We are still in three competitions and there are many of my colleagues who are not in three competitions anymore."

Slaven Bilic: "United had a great performance against Arsenal at home. They are a massive club and have one of the biggest managers in the business. We are expecting a good side to play in front of their own fans and we are expecting a better performance from them."
