West Ham manager Moyes now faces a reunion with his former side Man Utd at Old Trafford in the round of 16 after being held to a draw by the Reds in a draw just before their usual win on Monday night at Pride Park. The match will take place during the week starting February 27.

How West Ham overcame Derby

Paul Warne’s side are flying high in fourth place in the third division and there are high hopes for the disappointment of the home fans before the game kicks off with 25,308 spectators in Pride Park.

Derby striker Tom Barkhuizen wasted no time breaking through West Ham’s defence, dropping clear in the first minute before his pass was clearly blocked.

Bowen skilfully hit Derby keeper Joe Wildsmith shortly after, but it wasn’t too wasteful in the 10th minute.

Antonio’s ball over the head caught Derby with his foot and Bowen volleyed into Tomas Soucek’s net from six yards.

Derby’s best turn of the half saw James Collins volley off target after Barkhuizen caught a low pass from Craig Forsyth to pick out the Derby striker with a beautiful cross.

Barkhuizen and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing offered Derby’s best hope of getting back into form before half-time, but they had no shots on target in the first half.

The good news for Rams fans at halftime is that their side are still drawing against a top team that isn’t in the best shape.

But the first five minutes of the second half, the home team was 2-0 down. Derby captain Curtis Davies cut Bowen’s clearance on the right and his cross was headed by Antonio into the far corner after Forsyth missed.

Warne launched four substitutes – Eiran Cashin, Liam Thompson, Lewis Dobbin and Tony Springett – shortly after and their new legs helped Derby sublimate.

Haydon Roberts was an inch away from fully connecting with Dobbin’s excellent cross, but the Rams were soon back.

Bowen was denied consecutively by Wildsmith’s brilliant save and Cashin’s final tackle before Ben Johnson’s cross was saved by the Derby keeper.

The Rams gave their best until the final whistle blew and Dobbin was almost rewarded for a dramatic appearance when he shot straight at Alphonse Areola, but that night, County couldn’t get past the level gap. grant.

Bowen: You have to beat the best to win the trophy

Jarrod Bowen said “to be the best you have to beat the best” after West Ham were held to a draw by United in the fifth round.

“I knew (about the draw) from the bench. We take on Man Utd away so listen, it’s never easy and if we want to be successful in these competitions, we’re going to have to do that. I have to beat the strongest teams,” Bowen said ITVSports.

“For Man United, they’re a top team but we’ve been there so many times before and you have to beat the best to be the best.”

Bowen added: “It’s great to score against Everton and tonight too. I think the situation we’re in, any confidence from any player…

“The last two games going in were very good for me but I think for us, the next two wins too, two good results for us and it’s all about momentum in this game and I think we can use this in the future.”

Warne: We can’t beat the boys

Derby boss Paul Warne told ITV Sport: “To be fair, West Ham played a professional performance, at times I think we went head-to-head but I don’t think we did enough to make it happen. unfortunately scored.

“We couldn’t beat the players tonight, we asked them to be the best version of themselves against a Premier League team, which is not bad.

“But maybe we didn’t have enough chances in the last third of the game but I really couldn’t beat them and we know West Ham won’t have an easy draw next but I sincerely wish them lucky.

“I think the guys sometimes overestimated themselves and sometimes they punched.”
