Anthony Martial came to the rescue of Manchester United and Louis van Gaal as his late equaliser against West Ham took this FA Cup quarter-final to a replay.

The feel-good factor that had temporarily returned to Old Trafford looked set to be well and truly extinguished on Sunday, with Dimitri Payet's wondrous free-kick leaving the Red Devils facing up to an embarrassing third straight loss.

But just as the atmosphere at Old Trafford was turning nasty, Martial saved the day - and United's blushes - by turning home from an acute angle to secure a 1-1 draw and another shot at reaching the FA Cup semi-finals.

This, though, was another prosaic display from Van Gaal's men in which West Ham back-up goalkeeper Darren Randolph did not even have a shot to save in another unimaginative first half.

Emmanuel Emenike twice had efforts at United's goal during the opening period and Slaven Bilic's men eventually took the lead in the 68th minute, when Payet - shortly after avoiding a second booking for simulation - curled home an exceptional 25-yard free-kick.

Marouane Fellaini's substitution was cheered as the mood darkened around Old Trafford, only for Martial to net a late leveller and keep alive United's hopes of winning the FA Cup for the first time in 12 years.

However, this poor performance, on the back of the embarrassing 2-0 loss at Liverpool in the Europa League last-16, will raise fresh questions about Van Gaal's future. United were hardly the "wounded animal" Bilic had warned his players about.
