Blackburn 1 West Ham 5: Payet shines as Hammers cruise into FA Cup quarter-finals

The Nigerian forward collected Payet’s long ball before rounding the keeper with some cute step overs.



Star man Payet finished off the game in style as he galloped through a weary Rovers defence before firing home the fifth.

Rovers boss Paul Lambert said: “For 55 minutes we were well in the game. That sending off killed us but they are not too far off a Champions League place.”
