Man Utd got here thanks to a last gasp 2-2 draw at Upton Park 11 days ago and despite not wanting a replay, Sir Alex Ferguson has stated he wants to win this competition this season so expect him to field a strong side, while having one eye on a crunch Premier League tie with Tottenham on Sunday.

Robin Van Persie will probably start on the bench so Javier Hernandez is expected to start up front and there could be a shuffle at the back after Vidic got injured against Liverpool on Sunday so Chris Smalling could start.

You can’t help feeling West Ham had their chance in the first clash and United will get the job done here, but Sam Allerdyce will certainly send his side out to give it a go but West Ham have failed to score their last four trips to Old Trafford, losing all four. Manchester United to win to nil tonight is 7/5 (Paddy Power). To further back up that bet, West Ham have failed to score in their last four away matches and have only won twice on the road all season.

With that clash on Sunday against Tottenham coming up for Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson may well want this tie put to bed early so expect the home side to fly out of the blocks and have a speculative punt on them to score an early goal.
