Manchester United came from behind to beat West Ham 3-1 and advance to the FA Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday, but Tottenham were stunned by Championship side Sheffield United.

In the evening’s other fifth-round matches, Grimsby Town defeated Premier League strugglers Southampton 2-1, and Burnley defeated 10-man Fleetwood 1-0.

Manchester United struggled to be fluid in front of a receptive Old Trafford crowd after making six changes to the team that defeated Newcastle in the League Cup final on Sunday.

Michail Antonio was stopped by United goalkeeper David de Gea midway through the first period when the West Ham forward bore down on goal and Emerson Palmieri flashed a tempting ball across the box.

At halftime, United manager Erik ten Hag substituted Casemiro for Scott McTominay, but the home team stayed sluggish.

In the 54th minute, after the home defence had stopped believing the ball had been sent out for a throw-in, Said Benrahma made them pay.

After the goal, Ten Hag substituted top scorer Marcus Rashford, but Antonio had a wonderful opportunity to extend West Ham’s lead but was once again denied by De Gea.

In the 72nd minute, Casemiro had the ball in the net, but a VAR review determined that his header from a Bruno Fernandes free-kick was offside.

Five minutes later, after Fernandes had sent in a corner, United finally equalised when Nayef Aguerd headed in his own goal.

The home team pushed forward in search of a victory, still on a high from ending their trophy drought at the weekend.

They were rewarded when Fred scored in stoppage time and Argentine teenager Garnacho scored a right-footed curler to put United ahead in the 90th minute.

“The best teams never give up,” Manchester United captain Harry Maguire told ITV. “I’m not saying we’re one of the best teams out there.

“We have a lot to do, but we’re getting there, we’re making progress… At the end, it felt like the Stretford End was sucking the goal in.”
