Man United next in FA Youth Cup

Manchester United will be West Ham United's opponents in the FA Youth Cup fourth round.

The Red Devils came through their third-round meeting with Portsmouth courtesy of a 3-2 victory at their Moss Lane training ground on Monday.

Paul Pogba, an own-goal from Pompey goalkeeper Tom Fry and William Keane put United into a commanding 3-0 lead before two Ryan Williams efforts set-up an exciting finish.

However, in front of the watching Sir Alex Ferguson and Sir Bobby Charlton, United held on to set-up a fourth-round visit to the Boleyn Ground. The tie will take place next Wednesday 19 January, with kick-off at 7pm.

West Ham won through to the fourth round with a comprehensive 5-0 win over Aldershot Town on 7 December. George Moncur, Sebastian Lletget, Dylan Tombides and Daniel Purdy were all on target, while Shots captain Doug Bergqvist put through his own net.

The Hammers, who are currently competing in the Baniyas Youth Football Championship in Abu Dhabi, have lifted the FA Youth Cup on three previous occasions - 1963, 1981 and 1999.

United have won the competition a record nine times, with their most recent success coming in 2003.
