West Ham managed to reduce the deficit in the 78th minute when Andy Carroll's knockdown found James Tomkins, who headed home from three-yards out, 2-1.

De Gea ensured United progressed to the next round, as the Spaniard produced a stunning save to deny Chiekhou and Carroll in quick succession, as United held on for the win.
