The Scottish midfielder came off the bench to settle the tie with a smart finish midway through the first period of extra-time after a drab 90 minutes had ended goalless.

West Ham were able to call on Tomas Soucek after his red card against Fulham was rescinded, while United made six changes from Saturday’s frustrating 3-3 draw with Everton.
