Our match prediction:
Blackburn Rovers have endured some tough times since lifting the Premier League trophy in 1995, and this season is not exactly an exception to the rule. The Ewood Park outfit have experienced all sorts of problems in the Championship as they currently occupy 18th place in the overall standings, with their FA Cup campaign the only bright spot. However, after beating minnows Newport County and Oxford United, Rovers will have much bigger fish to fry when they take on in-form West Ham, who appear to be taking the competition very seriously. After eliminating Wolverhampton in the third round, the Hammers first held Liverpool to a goalless draw at Anfield before winning the replay by scoring deep into extra time, and they will see this match as a perfect opportunity to edge closer to the final stages. Slaven Bilic's charges have shown a great deal of potential this season and it is not difficult to predict that they will leave Ewood Park victorious.
Highlighted Team (West Ham United):
West Ham United are an English football club based in East London. The club was founded in 1895 and it has to be noted that the club’s name was Thames Ironworks back then. The Hammers were playing their home games at Upton Park from 1904 until 2016, when they moved to the Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. West Ham have won three FA Cup trophies (1964, 1975 and 1980) and they were runners-up in 1923 and 2006. The capital club finished the 1985/1986 England first division campaign in third place in the standings and that is the club’s highest placing in the top flight. West Ham United have strong rivalries with fellow London clubs, but Tottenham Hotspur are considered the club’s main rivals. A number of top-class players were part of West Ham in the past and the likes of Joe Cole, Carlos Tevez, Paolo Di Canio, Paul Ince, Julian Dicks, Shaka Hislop, Michael Carrick and Slaven Bilic are some of them.
