Thanks for joining us for live coverage of West Ham's 2-0 FA Cup fourth-round victory over Derby County at Pride Park.
West Ham's reward will be a tie away at Old Trafford against United, though they must turn their attentions back to the Premier League first as they look to pull away from the relegation zone. For Derby, their cup dream is over, but they could still be lifting silverware come the end of this season as they bid to get back into the Championship at the first time of asking following their relegation last term.
West Ham are into the fifth round of the FA Cup as they cruise to a 2-0 victory over League One Derby. Bowen opened the scoring after 10 minutes, firing home from Soucek's clever assist to give the Hammers the lead. They grabbed a second not long after the break, Bowen again causing havoc to cross for Antonio to nod home. Derby huffed and puffed to get back into the game late on, but Moyes's side never looked in danger of letting their lead slip and they run out comfortable winners.
90' + 2' West Ham look content to keep possession and see out the remaining seconds.
90' Roberts sneaks in at the back post to meet Collins' cross, but his header deflects off the back of Kehrer and harmlessly away from danger.
90' There will be three minutes of additional time at the end of this match.
89' Aguerd has looked very assured at left centre-back, but a rare mistake sees him let the ball go under his foot and out for a throw-in to the hosts. It ends up coming to nothing though.
M. Lanzini
Pablo Fornals
87' Moyes puts on Lanzini for Fornals.
86' Derby's first shot on target of the contest comes in the 86th minute, though Dobbin can only fire straight at Areola.
85' West Ham have won their last four FA Cup ties against sides from outside the top-two divisions of English football since losing 4-2 away at Wimbledon in January 2019. It is looking like they will extend that run to five here.
83' Mubama shows great strength to win the ball back and then win a free-kick as the minutes continue to tick away.
81' Time is running out on the Rams if they are to force a replay. The visitors have defended resolutely to this point and have not showed much sign of letting their two-goal advantage slip.
D. Mubama
J. Bowen
78' Young striker Mubama comes on for Bowen, who set the Hammers on their way with his 10th-minute strike.
A. Cresswell
78' Emerson makes way for Cresswell on West Ham's left.
75' Derby remain yet to have a shot on target, with Areola enjoying a relatively comfortable game so far. Can Derby change that in the remaining 15 minutes?
73' Johnson lets fly with a rasping drive, but Wildsmith does well to punch it away and keep the scoreline at 2-0.
J. Rooney
C. Hourihane
71' Warne puts on Rooney for Hourihane as he tries to get his side back into the game.
T. Souček
Yellow Card
70' Soucek is booked for a late challenge on Thompson in midfield.
69' Johnson blasts a first-time cross into the box, but Cashin does superbly to hack clear before Bowen can reach it.
67' It should be 3-0! Some intricate build-up play gives Bowen room to shoot, but Wildsmith keeps his side in the game with a brilliant save to block the forward's shot.
66' Dobbin's first act after his introduction is to hoist a dangerous delivery to the back post, but none of the three Derby players waiting at the back post are able to scramble anything goalwards.
S. Benrahma
M. Antonio
64' Benrahma, who scored West Ham's winner in the last round against Brentford, replaces Antonio.
L. Dobbin
C. Davies
63' Dobbin, on loan from Everton, is the last of the quadruple change as he comes on for Davies.
T. Springett
N. Mendez-Laing
62' Springett enters the fray for Mendez-Laing.
E. Cashin
T. Barkhuizen
62' Barkhuizen makes way for Cashin.
L. Thompson
M. Bird
61' Bird does indeed come off, with Thompson on to replace him.
60' Bird looks in pain after going down under no contact. It appears Warne will have to make a change here.
58' Mendez-Laing wins a couple of corners in succession after he sees crosses blocked behind by Aguerd and then Ogbonna. Derby cannot capitalise though as West Ham keep them out with relative ease.
56' Antonio nods a delivery from the right back across the face of goal, but none of his team-mates are there to turn it in and Derby clear the danger.
55' Moyes' side are pushing for a third goal here that would surely put this tie to bed, as Derby's defenders are forced to deal with a couple of threatening crosses.
53' Derby have scored 12 goals in the FA Cup this season, their most since the 1992-93 campaign (13). They will need to add two more to that tally if they are to get back into this game.
M. Antonio
50' Goal!!! Antonio makes it 2-0 to the visitors! The ball finds itself with Bowen on the right of the Derby box, and his low cross deflects perfectly off Forsyth for Antonio to nod home at the back post. Derby have a real mountain to climb now.
47' Knight makes space for a shot just outside the box, but his low effort skims wide. This is an encouraging start to the second half though from Derby.
46' The hosts get us back underway for the second period.
While Warne's men have held their own here, they have not tested Areola yet in the West Ham goal. They will need to find more of an attacking output if they are to get back into this tie.
The referee blows the whistle for half-time as the Hammers take a 1-0 lead into the break. In an opening 45 minutes lacking in quality, Moyes' team were given the advantage after excellent build-up play between Antonio and Soucek ended up at the feet of Bowen, who finished with aplomb to put the Premier League side in front. However, Derby remain in the tie and still have a real chance of getting back into this game and pulling off the shock if they can find another gear in the second half.
45' Barkhuizen curls well over Areola's crossbar before the fourth official puts up his board and indicates there will be one minute of additional time.
43' Mendez-Laing drives to the byline past Emerson and looks to pull the ball back for a team-mate in the middle, but Ogbonna is well-placed to hack it clear before a Derby player can get to it.
42' Derby have won their last three matches in the FA Cup, scoring 10 goals and conceding just once. The Rams have not won four in a row since March 1976.
39' Aside from Bowen's goal, this game has lacked in attacking quality and there has been a real dearth of clear-cut chances.
37' Derby are not overly convincing as they try to deal with the corner, but they are able to eventually scramble it clear.
36' Emerson wins a corner after an exquisite diagonal ball from Soucek. Can Moyes' men find a second goal here?
34' Collins tries an audacious left-footed volley, but the ball comes off his shin and Areola watches it fly well wide of his goal.
32' West Ham have not faced the Rams since New Year's Eve in 2011, when they lost 2-1 at Pride Park in a Championship fixture.
29' The hosts have had 57.5 per cent of the possession so far, but they are yet to record a shot on target.
27' This is the second FA Cup tie between Derby and West Ham – the previous game took place in March 1923 at Stamford Bridge in that season’s semi-final, won 5-2 by the Hammers who then lost in the first Wembley final a month later to Bolton.
24' After Emerson receives some treatment following the challenge from Smith, the resulting free-kick is poor and easily gathered by Wildsmith. That was a wasted opportunity for the Hammers.
K. Smith
Yellow Card
22' Smith is the first player to go in referee Thomas Bramall's book after bringing down Emerson on the touchline.
21' Hourihane tries his luck with an ambitious effort from range as Derby search for an equaliser, but his left-footed effort flies well wide.
19' Bowen looks to race onto Aguerd's long throughball, but Wildsmith is alert and out of his goal quickly to stamp out of the danger before the West Ham man can score his second of the game.
17' Antonio gives the ball away and Derby charge forward in numbers. However, they cannot take advantage of Antonio's error as Knight sloppily hands possession back to the visitors.
14' Mendez-Laing floats a delightful ball into the West Ham box, but Collins just cannot quite jump high enough to meet it and nod goalwards.
12' The Hammers have now scored in their last four FA Cup away games.
T. Souček
10' Soucek's header to Bowen was perfectly weighted to allow the former Hull City man to fire home first time.
J. Bowen
10' Goal!!! West Ham take the lead! It is Bowen with the goal, but Soucek plays a big part in it too. Antonio flicks a lovely ball over the Derby defence, and Soucek cleverly nods it across to Bowen, who coolly finishes to make it 1-0 to the visitors!
9' Bowen drives into the box, and chooses to ignore the options on his left and let fly. However, it proves to be a poor decision as his tame shot is easily saved by Wildsmith.
7' Derby want a free-kick after Ogbonna bundles over Knight in midfield, but the referee waves play-on, much to the frustration of the home fans.
5' It has been a cagey opening here as both teams try to settle into the game.
3' Antonio has the first attempt of the match after charging into the box, but his drive from a tight angle flies well wide of Wildsmith's goal.
1' The visitors kick us off and we are underway!
The winner of this tie will play Manchester United at Old Trafford in the fifth round. That is some prize up for grabs, as the two teams make their way onto the pitch at Pride Park.
Visiting manager David Moyes goes with six alterations from the 2-0 home victory over Everton, with Areola in for Fabianski between the sticks, while Soucek and Downes come into the midfield as Rice and Paqueta drop to the bench. Kehrer replaces Kurt Zouma in the back three, while Johnson and Fornals also start.
Home boss Paul Warne makes just one change from his team's last outing, a 2-1 comeback victory at Port Vale, and it is a forced one as Collins starts up front for the injured David McGoldrick.
SUBS: Aaron Cresswell, Declan Rice, Divin Mubama, Levi Laing, Lucas Paqueta, Lukasz Fabianski, Manuel Lanzini, Said Benrahma, Vladimir Coufal.
WEST HAM (3-4-2-1): Alphonse Areola; Angelo Ogbonna, Thilo Kehrer, Nayef Aguerd; Ben Johnson, Tomas Soucek, Flynn Downes, Emerson; Pablo Fornals, Jarrod Bowen; Michail Antonio.
SUBS: Tony Springett, Scott Loach, Richard Stearman, Liam Thompson, Lewis Dobbin, Jake Rooney, Eiran Cashin, Darren Robinson, Dajaune Brown.
DERBY COUNTY (4-2-3-1): Joe Wildsmith; Korey Smith, Craig Davies, Craig Forsyth, Haydon Roberts; Conor Hourihane, Max Bird; Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, Jason Knight, Tom Barkhuizen; James Collins.
Against a side two divisions below them, the visitors will hope to keep their hopes of lifting this famous trophy for a fourth time alive. The Hammers have struggled in the Premier League, winning just five of their 20 games so far this campaign to sit 16th, but progressing to the next round here could help them kick on in the remainder of the season.
The hosts come into this tie hoping to make the fifth round of the FA Cup for the first time since the 2019-20 campaign. The League One side are in great form, having won seven of their last eight in all competitions, and will be looking to pull off the upset here.
