Manchester United v West Ham FA Cup 5th round: Start time and how to watch live and free in Australia
Manchester United is looking to reignite a stuttering season against West Ham in the FA Cup.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a few headaches ahead of the FA Cup clash with West Ham. Star midfielder Paul Pogba is out for "a few weeks" with a thigh injury while the Red Devils' Premier League title chase is also waning.
After leading the league a few weeks ago, United are now five points off the pace set by arch-rivals Manchester City. That prompted club legend Rio Ferdinand to accuse them of "choking".
United advanced to the FA Cup fifth round with a 3-2 win over Liverpool while West Ham thrashed Doncaster Rovers 4-0. The Hammers are enjoying a strong season and sit sixth in the Premier League.

Who will win Man United v West Ham FA Cup 5th round?
Despite the Pogba setback, we expect United to have too much quality for West Ham here. Solskjaer also appears highly motivated to improve on last year's FA Cup finish. "That's the ultimate challenge and a test for a team: to go all the way," Solskjaer said.
"We've improved, we've had a plan in place, and I think the team is getting better and better. Last season's semi-final was disappointing to lose that one of course... So that's the next step for us in the development of this team: to go all the way in a competition."
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to play a strong team with Dean Henderson in place of David De Gea in goal, according to the Metro - and for West Ham, David Moyes cannot play Jesse Lingard, who is on loan from Manchester United.
