Manchester United FA Cup winner Paul McGrath hopes victory over West Ham can spark a turnaround.

McGrath wrote for the Sunday World: "I wonder will we look back on this game next May and say 'that was the match where it all changed for United'.

"You can't overestimate what these three late points mean for Manchester United against West Ham at Old Trafford mean. And for three reasons.

"First off, they are now ahead of Arsenal and Spurs, sitting in fourth place in the Premier League table.

"Yes, the two London clubs have games in hand, but the Red Devils have points in the bag and that counts for a lot.

"Secondly, every team that plays United in every game for the rest of this season who manage to get to 85 minutes at 0-0 will remember the end of this match."

"They will drop deeper and deeper and deeper, maybe the way West Ham should have done instead of going all out for the win themselves.

"And thirdly, can this be the match that sees the resurrection of Marcus Rashford? For about the last eight matches in which he's played, I've hardly seen this lad go past an opponent."
