Chance for West Ham!

It's the diagonal runs in behind United's backline where West Ham are finding the most joy.

This time its Benrahma who makes that run, and finds space inside the United penalty area. De Gea does well again, however, to block his effort.

Moments later, Benrahma is fouled by McTominay, who receives a booking.

That's two United players who like to be adventurous when winning the ball who have to be cautious now.

West Ham growing into the game

27' Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

West Ham are certainly having their moments.

This time its Paqueta who tries his luck from the edge of the area. His effort is struck with venom but it is straight at De Gea.

United need to be careful to not get too complacent here.

Yellow card for Maguire

Antonio does really well on the halfway line. He lets the ball run across his body and spins Maguire, with the centre-back catching Antonio with his outstretched leg.

The referee reaches for his pocket and the United captain is the first player to receive a caution.

Chance for West Ham!

The two United centre-backs are caught ball-watching, and a ball is played in behind to Antonio.

The forward only has De Gea to beat, but the United No 1 does well to force a difficult angle for Antonio and saves his subsequent effort.

West Ham have a corner and the man-mountain Soucek wins his header at the near post but it hits the side netting.

Both sides disjointed in attack

20' Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

It's interesting to see how United go about their goal-getting without the golden touch of Marcus Rashford. So far, they haven't had much luck. Although Garnacho has seen plenty of the ball down the left, his decision-making has let him down at times.

Equally, West Ham have defended well but are struggling to conjure up any real threat so far in the final third.

Reminder: There will be a winner tonight

There are no replays due to the congested fixture schedule since the winter World Cup.

That means extra-time and, yes, penalties are on the cards...

United players protest foul

15' Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

Paqueta miscontrols on the halfway line, and is dispossessed by Weghorst with United pushing players forward at pace.

The referee, however, calls play back for a foul on Paqueta by Weghorst — much to the displeasure of the Dutch international.

United finding joy down the left

United are getting plenty of joy down the left flank. Garnacho, in particular, is looking bright and eager to take on his full-back at every occasion.

McTominay is very much the deepest midfielder here for Ten Hag's side as well, allowing Sabitzer the freedom to venture further forward.

And the midfielder once again drives through the heart of midfield, before finding Garnacho on the left channel. The 18-year-old cuts inside, allowed too much space by Johnson, but his curling effort is saved by Areola.

'Viva Garnacho' rings around Old Trafford.

Chance for Manchester United!

6' Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

Good save from Areola!

McTominay does well carrying the ball across the edge of the West Ham area. He finds Weghorst, who delicately lays it off for Sabitzer.

The midfielder's first-time effort is struck low and hard towards the bottom right-hand corner but Areola reacts quickly to parry it away.

Maguire betters Antonio

4' Man Utd 0-0 West Ham

A potential opportunity for West Ham comes to nothing.

Antonio, a player usually full of direct running, is one-v-one against Maguire.

The West Ham forward is shepherded out comfortably by Maguire.

Record clean sheets for De Gea

A touching moment.

Sir Alex Ferguson, who brought De Gea to Manchester United, hands the Spanish goalkeeper an award for achieving the club' record clean sheets (181).

A festive atmosphere to start proceedings, United will be hoping it can continue on the pitch...

It's followed by a brief presentation for Casemiro and Mary Earps, who were honoured in the FIFA Best Awards on Tuesday.

Garnacho's moment?

The Argentine teenager is brimming with pace, trickery and charisma every time he steps up on the pitch.

His three goals and five assists in all competitions has seen him become one of the breakout stars within the United side this season, but he will be hoping for more consistency.

Can the 18-year-old light up Old Trafford once again tonight?

Man Utd not satisfied just winning Carabao Cup - Ten Hag

Erik ten Hag has insisted his Manchester United side are not satisfied with just winning the Carabao Cup.

Ten Hag watched his team beat Newcastle United at Wembley on Sunday to end a six-year trophy drought.

That result capped a fine run of form which has seen them surge into contention in the Premier League title race as well as stay in the hunt in both the Europa League and FA Cup in recent months.

However, despite the cup final success, the Dutchman is well aware that they are far from reaching their end goal.

“They (the players) have to take responsibility for their performance,” he said. “I cannot see that (a drop in performance levels happening).

“It is a trophy, but it is not the end of the season. When I see the fight in the dressing room, it is not like we are satisfied with this.

“We want to do better and that is quite clear. It is inspiring but it is not the end – definitely not.”
