West Ham failed to make it into the next round after they lost to Manchester United in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Tuesday night.

After playing out a goalless draw in the normal time of play, an extra-time strike from Scott McTominay was enough for the home side to secure a place in the next round.

West Ham manager, David Moyes after the match reveals why his team lost to his former side with the former Everton coach claiming they deserve a chance to take the game to penalties.

West Ham boss David Moyes, speaking to BBC Sport: "That was really hard to take because the players played brilliantly well.

"We lost a few players during the game and that was difficult. I don't think we deserved to lose the game. We warranted the chance to go to penalty kicks.

"One of our centre-backs was on the bench and felt his calf in the warm-up. Before we knew it we had a few players out. We didn't play well in the first half - we know that. But we were playing a really good team in terrific form.

"In extra-time we had one or two opportunities. I'm not going to look back on the goal conceded - I'll look at how we played well. The level these teams are at, United have got a really good team."

Asked if Michail Antonio will be fit for the weekend, Moyes added: "I hope so. I don't think it's too bad."
