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

21 Feb

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.”
