  • That's me done for evening. Thanks for your company, and all of your tweets and emails. Commiserations to the West Ham fans who have seen their side bow out of the competition. Fergie's boys may have stumbled into the next round, but could they be on the path to more FA Cup glory? See you all soon!

  • And that's it! Manchester United move into the fourth round and have a home tie with Fulham waiting for them. West Ham fans will be haunted by that late Van Persie goal at Upton Park - they were so close!

  • Full time: Manchester United 1-0 West Ham

  • Still hope for West Ham with a throw in of their own high up the pitch. It's another deep cross into the box but there's no danger this time and Lindegaard gathers it up. That could be it for the visitors!

    90 + 1
  • Good footwork from Giggs earns Man Utd a throw in and they're in no hurry to take it. Three minutes of added time...

  • Bad challenge from Scholes on Matt Taylor and he's in the book. Looks like he took a caution for the team there!

  • ... but the cross is over hit and the hosts get it away comfortably. West Ham have started to press higher up the field now. It's something they should have done ten minutes ago but can it pay off?

  • Hernandez has the ball in the net! But it's offside by some distance. Great ball from Giggs to find Chico free. A better effort than Rooney's penalty that's for sure. West Ham have another free kick in a good position now...

  • Six minutes plus injury time for West Ham to find an equaliser. Looks like the home side are ready to play for time to hang on to their lead now. Can the Hammers get back into this and force extra-time at Old Trafford?

  • Well, well, well. Fergie turned away in disbelief after that penalty. West Ham need to capitalise and thump another high ball into the box. United aren't defending these well, but West Ham aren't attacking them well either...

  • There's a change for West Ham too. Youngster Elliott Lee is on for Ricardo Vaz Te

  • Man United bring on Scholes for Nani

  • That's terrible! Rooney balloons it over the cross bar and West Ham are still in this.

  • Man Utd have a spot kick. Spence is guilty again, leaving his arm out. Referee didn't think twice about that one.

  • Jordan Spence goes into the book for a late challange.

  • Taylor does the right thing and goes for a first time shot on the edge of the area but it's well wide. This is what West Ham need to be doing though. There's still 15 minutes to go and nothing to lose. Start throwing the chips down and take a gamble.

  • Another chance goes a begging for West Ham. Good work from Vaz Te and Nolan sees the latter free in the area. But he tries to cut inside rather than take the shot first time and gets the ball stuck under his feet.

  • Rooney's attempted through ball is too quick for Hernandez. And the home fans are groaning moments later as Valencia skies an attempted cross over the crossbar. Can someone get me a battery? The energy seems to have drained out of this game.
