Fa Cup game Of the Week:West Ham2-2Manchester United

Manchester United grabbed a stoppage time goal to deny West Ham a famous victory at Upton Park. Tom Cleverley put the Red devils ahead after he side-footed the ball into the net. However James Collins equalised soon after with his first goal for the club when Joe Cole (making his second debut for the club) crossed and James Collins headed in. 59 minutes gone and it was an action replay. Joe Cole crossed and James Collins headed in again.

Manchester United were running out of time so Sir Alex Ferguson threw on Robin van Persie to do his magic. And he did. Soon after Ryan Giggs' header cleared the crossbar, van Persie scored from inside the area into the bottom left corner. And that sent that the match to a replay.
