David Moyes is relishing another trip to Old Trafford in the FA Cup after West Ham’s routine 2-0 win at Derby set up a fifth-round tie at his former club.Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio scored in either half for the Hammers, who will now face Manchester United in a cup competition for the fifth time in seven years.Moyes, sacked by United in 2014 only 10 months after replacing Sir Alex Ferguson, said: “I’m really looking forward to the game.

I think it’s a really good game for us at West Ham.“I think maybe at the moment that’s the game we need because I think we’ve got players who want to play on the big stage and players who can play on the big stage.“There’s nothing bigger than Old Trafford, so I’m saying to the players, ‘Come on, let’s go and take it on and challenge them’.”West Ham will play United in a cup game for the third successive season.

The Hammers won 1-0 at Old Trafford in last season’s Carabao Cup and lost by the same score in the FA Cup fifth round the year before.Moyes said: “Man United are playing very well.

The manager’s doing a great job there, so it will be a tough, tough game, but why not?There's nothing bigger than Old Trafford, so I'm saying to the players, 'Come on, let's go and take it on and challenge them'“If you’re going to get to the cup final, you’re going to have to find a way of knocking a few of the bigger teams out along the road.”Moyes described his side’s win at Derby as “job done”, having made six changes after their 2-0 home win against Everton nine days ago lifted them out of the Premier League’s bottom three.He added: “Really thrilled that we’re through.
