Manchester United vs West Ham takes place on Wednesday evening in an FA Cup replay. The game can be watched online through free live stream by clicking on the link below.
This is a replay of these teams' third round tie a few weeks ago, which was hugely entertaining. In that game West Ham managed to turn over their English Premier League rivals and looked to be heading for the win, until an injury time goal by Robin Van Persie rescued the tie for Manchester United and forced the replay.
Manchester United were favorites for the original tie at Upton Park in East London, but they will be huge favorites now the tie moves back to Old Trafford.
Their Old Trafford fortress rarely is breached by opponents and it will take an almighty effort from West Ham to overturn their northern rivals tonight.
Wayne Rooney will also be making his comeback from his knee injury tonight, and he will further add weight to most predictions that the home side will come through this game.
Rooney has not played since the 1-1 draw played out against Swansea on Dec. 23. However, manager Sit Alex Ferguson has confirmed that both Rooney and Portuguese winger Nani will start the game at Old Trafford tonight.
Speaking ahead of the game Ferguson said simply that both would play and that "Both are fit."
Javier Hernandez and Antonio Valencia will also feature in tonight's tie and they should be well rested having been left out of the Manchester United line up on Sunday when United defeated Liverpool.
"[There's] Chicha [Hernandez] and Antonio, we've got a strong squad, you know," he added. "There won't be many changes really. Wayne coming back is good news. He's been training for a week and looking good. As for Nani, he came back from his spell abroad [having a break in Dubai] and is really looking very good. So I'm fine and will play a strong team."
Manchester United vs West Ham kicks off at 3.05 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream by clicking here.
