AFPAnthony Martial keeps Manchester United’s FA Cup dream alive after Dmitri Payet stunner

Anthony Martial struck late on to rescue Manchester United as they drew 1-1 at home to West Ham in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, leaving both teams in the hat for Monday’s semi-final draw.
For Slaven Bilic it would be a chance to crown his first season with a trophy, and for Louis van Gaal it would probably be his last chance at Old Trafford. Nonetheless, he elected to start with Marouane Fellaini in midfield, and Bilic dropped Adrian, Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia to the bench.
Neither side found a way through in the first 45 minutes. In the second half, Dmitri Payet’s free-kick brilliantly beat David De Gea from 30 yards. However, Martial managed to turn up with minutes remaining to finish at the near post to equalise.
The two sides go to the Boleyn Ground for the last ever FA Cup tie before West Ham move to their new ground to decide who makes the semis.
