West Bromwich Albion substitutes: Myhill, Baird, Olsson, McManaman, Pocognoli, Gamboa, Wisdom.

A place in the last eight of the FA Cup is up for grabs this afternoon as West Bromwich Albion host West Ham United at The Hawthorns.

The Baggies have turned a corner under new manager Tony Pulis, and defeated local rivals Birmingham in the fourth round to set up a tie with fellow Premier League side West Ham.

After an impressive 2-0 win over Swansea City in midweek, strikers Saido Berahino and Brown Ideye are again given the nod up front having both scored against the Swans.

Sam Allardyce's men squeezed past Bristol City thanks to a 1-0 win over the League One club, and with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham already out of the competition, they will believe that they can win the FA Cup for the first time since 1980.

West Ham's injury crisis continues, but Mark Noble returns to the side having missed Wednesday's trip to Southampton, meaning the Hammers can return to the midfield diamond, with Stewart Downing roaming behind Diafra Sakho and Enner Valencia.
