The FA Cup could be just the distraction West Ham need. They may not be out the woods just yet but, after Jarrod Bowen extended his resurgence in front of goal, this third win in five games continued to lift the sense of impending doom around the club as David Moyes’s team booked yet another cup tie away to Manchester United.
Bowen, whose two goals against Everton helped West Ham climb out of the relegation zone, scored the first goal and made the second for Michail Antonio as the Premier League side ensured they did not slip on any passing fruit that Derby County, the League One promotion-chasers, might have resembled.
