FA Cup: West Ham 1-2 Manchester United highlights

Right, that's it from me. I'll leave you with the highlights from a classic FA Cup tie. 

Until next time, cheerio.

Future's bright?

West Ham 1-2 Man Utd

BBC Radio 5 Live

Danny Mills on Timothy Fosu-Mensah: "Young players often do well for the first four or five games, then tail off a bit. Sometimes a little bit of reality kicks in, it’s whether they can do it seven to 20 games. You’ve never quite made it until you’ve played 50 games.

“It’s different as a striker, you get thrown on for 10 minutes and if you give the ball away you’re 70 yards from goal.

“If you’re a defender, you make a mistake it ends up in the goal and you can’t get back from that. He’s got a lot of potential and looks a good prospect for the future, but that’s all it is at the moment.”

Meanwhile, if you want to check in on Manchester United's FA Cup semi-final opponents, and need a bit of help dropping off to sleep, then follow Everton's game at Crystal Palace here.

It's goalless, and has been a thriller...

'We will bounce back'

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic, speaking to BBC Sport: "It is not what we wanted of course, but we gave our best. They were better tonight in the majority of the game. We had energy and commitment but they were killing us with ball possession.

"Apart from the first 15 minutes and final 20 they were the better side and we have to admit it. 

"We are fighting to finish as high as possible in the league, we have seven big games coming. This is a big disappointment. It takes out a bit of energy and motivation but we still have a big thing to play for. We are going to bounce back."

James Cheetham: Interesting times when you think United may struggle to hold onto a player. Not just De Gea. Rashford too.

'FA Cup title important for the club'

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal, speaking to BBC Sport: "We played defensively very well. We didn't give so much away. They lost the ball a lot of times and I believe with a bit more composure we could have finished it much earlier. I said at half-time we had to show composure in the third and fourth phase. We did that better but I still believe we could have finished the game earlier. 

On Rashford's finish: "Yes. I was on the bench behind his shot. I saw the corner of the goal and I thought you have to shoot and he did but it is much more difficult than you think."

On David de Gea: "He is our goalkeeper. We kept him and that is because he is one of the best you can imagine. I am very happy with him."

On the importance of winning the FA Cup: "It is not important for me, it is important for the club, for the players and for the team. I said I wanted a title and I am very happy but it is very important for the club."

West Ham 1-2 Man Utd

There's no doubt about it, this has been a stressful season for Louis van Gaal. There's a few more wisps of grey in his hair but he'll have enjoyed this result tonight.

His voice is a little croaky as he speaks to BBC Sport's Dan Walker. His full quotes up next.

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini, speaking to BBC Sport: "My goal was not luck, I wanted to do that. It was an important goal, good for the confidence. We are in the semi-final now and focus on the next game. We will do everything to win the FA Cup. It is an important trophy in England."

Edmund Emiowei:  Winning the FA Cup - as well as the emergence of the youth players - might just be enough to save Louis van Gaal's job.

Emily Sutton: Can barely breath after that last 5 mins. Great result - Rashford is a star. De Gea once more my man of the match.

Andy Carroll applauds the fans at full-time

“If you’re in good form, why not take him as a substitute. If you need to change a game, bring him off the bench.

“Andy Carroll won’t be fit. I know he scored a hat-trick at the weekend, but tonight he was anonymous and unless you give him perfect service into the box there is no real game plan.

“Andy Carroll only really plays one way.”

Player reaction

West Ham 1-2 Man Utd

Manchester United's Michael Carrick speaks to BBC Sport: "It was massive. A great opportunity for us to get to Wembley. West Ham are flying and it's a tough place to come. We believed we would come here and win and we have done that."

On De Gea: "He's been unbelievable for us for so long now. We needed him at the end. The goal gave them incentive. We defended well at times but David stepped up.

"We have had some terrific results and some bad ones. That's something we have tried to put right. We need to be consistent and that's the challenge we have to set ourselves."

Danny Mills

Former Man City defender on BBC Radio 5 live

"Say they finish fifth and win the FA Cup, is that enough for a club the size and stature of Manchester United? 

"This is the most unpredictable FA Cup we have seen at this stage. Normally you have clear favourites who is going to win it. I'm not sure we do.

"I thought West Ham were disappointing."

"I thought Manchester United were much better tonight. They nullified the threat for 77-78 minutes. In the main they defended very well."

What a belting FA Cup tie that was. 

It wasn't the result West Ham wanted, but a worthy game to bring the curtain down on cup football at Upton Park.

Next up for Manchester United, Everton at Wembley.

Steve Wilson

BBC Match of the Day commentator

"What a dramatic end to the game. A wonderful, memorable night at the Boleyn Ground that says farewell to FA Cup football for the final time."

West Ham alive at last

Phil McNulty

BBC Sport chief football writer at The Boleyn Ground

West Ham's subdued mood has been lifted and now The Boleyn Ground is rocking after James Topkins showed such bravery to score.

Manchester United played the better football to take that two-goal lead - but now they must dig in and show strength of character for these final minutes to secure that place at Wembley.

West Ham 1-2 Man Utd

Good footwork from Marcus Rashford once again allows him to escape down the left. He runs into a couple of defenders and rather than taking the chance with a cross, he holds the ball up in the corner to eat up a few valuable seconds. Manchester United needed the pressure relieving. Good work from the youngster.

"West Ham have got to make the most of this. The momentum is with them. They have got to throw everything at this - sofas and kitchen sinks."

Slaven Bilic

The home fans have found their voices once again and West Ham are the ones in control now. 

Manchester United need to show some real steel to withstand the Hammers for the final few minutes.

Can they hold on?
