West Ham thrash Burnley 5-1 in FA Cup tie

West Ham has thrashed Burnley 5-1 to move into the 6th round of England’s FA Cup knockout competition.

Avram Grant’s West Ham currently struggling at the bottom of the Premier League table put on an emphatic display against League One opponents Burnley who had been in good form of late.

Goals to Thomas Hitzlsperger, Carlton Cole (2), Winston Reid and Freddie Sears sealed a memorable victory for West Ham at Upton Park.

For Burnley only Jay Rodriguez got on the board after an awful goalmouth mixup between Wayne Bridge and Rob Green.
