Football: West Ham set up Manchester United fifth-round tie by beating Derby in FA Cup

West Ham United have eased into the fifth round of the FA Cup, with a comfortable 2-0 victory away to League One (third tier) Derby County.

A volley from close range by Jarrod Bowen put the Premier League side ahead in the 10th minute and the forward then crossed for striker Michail Antonio to head in a second goal five minutes after the break.

West Ham then comfortably saw out the victory, without conceding many chances, setting up a fifth-round tie away to Manchester United next month.

Non-league Wrexham could face a dream tie at home to eight-time winners Tottenham Hotspur in the fifth round, if they can get past Sheffield United in a replay, while Manchester City will travel to Championship (second-tier) side Bristol City. 

Owned by Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, Wrexham played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with visiting Sheffield United on Monday (NZ time).

The National League (fifth-tier) leaders were only denied a famous victory over the Championship side by a 95th-minute equaliser, forcing a replay next month.    

Spurs, who won 3-0 at Preston North End in the fourth round, face the winners of that replay, while Manchester City, who knocked out Premier League leaders Arsenal in the fourth round, face a trip to Bristol.
