West Ham take on Championship side Blackburn in the FA Cup 5th Round at Ewood Park.

On-loan Fenerbahce striker Emmanuel Emenike will get his first start for West ham today.

Hammers boss Slaven Bilic will no longer be able to call on Nikica Jelavic having sold the striker to China League One club Beijing Renhe.

West Ham have only won one of their last five league matches, but came back from two goals down to force a draw against Norwich last week.

Hammers reached the 5th round after knocking Liverpool out of the 4th Round on penalties to become the 10th Premier League side to progress to the next stage of games.
