Man United, Bournemouth in FA Cup quarters

·2-min read

Manchester United have progressed to the FA Cup quarter-finals for the seventh season in succession with substitute Scott McTominay's goal in extra time sealing a 1-0 win over West Ham United

Both sides lacked spark in a dire fifth-round clash with precious few chances in normal time at Old Trafford.

But McTominay finally relieved the tedium with a sharp low shot from Marcus Rashford's clever set-up in the 97th minute.

For most of the match United missed the creative flair of Bruno Fernandes, who came off the bench in the 73rd minute.

The hosts did, however, create the only real chances in regulation time with Lukasz Fabianski making good saves to deny Victor Lindelof and Rashford.

The visiting Hammers created next to nothing with Craig Dawson failing to connect with a header in front of goal in the dying moments of the 90 minutes.

United 12-time winners of the FA Cup, are accustomed to going deep in cup competitions under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the past year but the semi-finals have been the ceiling, losing in the last four in the League Cup (twice), the FA Cup and the Europa League.

Meanwhile, second-tier Bournemouth reached the last eight of the FA Cup for just the second time in their 122-year history by winning 2-0 at Premier League outfit Burnley.

The only other time the Championship team Bournemouth were in the last eight of the world's oldest club knock-out competition was in the 1956-57 season.

Sam Surridge opened the scoring from close range in the 21st minute before Junior Stanislas sealed the tie from the penalty spot in the 88th to see off a depleted Burnley at Turf Moor.

On a bad night for the Clarets, they were forced to make a late change to their starting XI when it was pointed out to them by a staff member of the visitors that defender Erik Pieters had been booked in the previous two rounds and was therefore ineligible to face the Cherries.

"It was very gentlemanly of them," Burnley manager Sean Dyche said.

"It wasn't disruptive. It was just a simple admin error."
