United host West Ham at Old Trafford on Tuesday night as the two side’s battle it out for a place in the quarter-finals of this year’s competition.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have been scoring for fun in the Premier League this season, but have struggled to keep goals out at the other end, something Moyes is well aware of.
