West Ham vs Leeds LIVE: Latest FA Cup updates

Follow live updates as West Ham host Leeds in the third round of the FA Cup this afternoon. The Hammers have enjoyed a strong season in the cup competitions so far this campaign, defeating both Manchester United and Manchester City as they reached the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup, while also progressing to the knockout stages of the Europa League under David Moyes. Back-to-back Premier League wins over Watford and Brighton have also moved West Ham back inside the Premier League’s top five ahead of Wednesday’s meeting with Norwich.

It’s been five years since Leeds last progressed past the third round of the FA Cup, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side losing at this stage in each of the last four seasons. Leeds secured a vital win over Burnley in their last Premier League fixture to ease their relegation concerns and a cup run this season would be fitting on what is the 50th anniversary of their FA Cup winning campaign of 1971-72, which remains the only occasion in which the club have won the competition. Follow live updates from the all-Premier League clash between West Ham and Leeds below.

48 mins: Close! Michail Antonio is given the ball on the left wing and takes on Diego Llorente. The defender forces Antonio to shift the ball to the byline but leaves him too much room to pull it back into the box. Bowen is waiting but the ball narrowly evades him and Leeds run it clear.
