LONDON — West Ham and Aston Villa defeated lower-league opponents in the fourth round Sunday to stem the flow of upsets in the FA Cup.

Senegal striker Diafra Sakho came off the bench and scored on an 81st-minute header to send West Ham to a 1-0 victory at Bristol City, which is in the third tier of English soccer.

Villa won 2-1 at home against second-tier leader Bournemouth. Carles Gil, with his first goal since his move from Valencia, and Andreas Weimann scored for the Premier League club.

Chelsea and Manchester City were among five teams in the Premier League's top nine to be eliminated Saturday in one of the most startling days in the storied competition's history.
