Photos: West Ham players arrive at The Hawthorns for FA Cup tie

West Ham United take on West Bromwich Albion in the fifth round of the FA Cup this afternoon.

West Ham United visit The Hawthorns this weekend as the Hammers and West Bromwich Albion kick off the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Both sides have the players at their disposal to have a good crack at this competition now some of the so-called big guns have fallen by the wayside. And considering West Brom are at home they will be quietly confident of getting a result against an impressive West Ham side.

That said, Sam Allardyce will want to claim a trophy at the end of what has been a truly impressive campaign thus far, and his players were photographed heading into the Baggies’ round ahead of the tie.

West Brom are currently 14th in the Premier League while West Ham are eighth, 12 points better off than today’s opponents.

That said, Tony Pulis’s men impressed last time out, winning 2-0 against Swansea City, so expect an entertaining match that could go either way to begin the next round of the competition.
