West Ham United are looking forward to an FA Cup quarter-final date with Stoke City on 12/13 March after a 5-1 fifth-round defeat of Burnley.

The match was memorable for the debut of Thomas Hitzlsperger and a stunning maiden strike, as well as a Carlton Cole double, Winston Reid's first goal in Hammers colours and a clincher from Freddie Sears. You can watch the highlights over and over again today on West Ham TV.

The prize for the winners at Stoke's Britannia Stadium next month will be a semi-final at Wembley, potentially the club's first game at the national stadium in 30 years. Manager Avram Grant, though, is rightly focusing on the more immediate challenge posed by Liverpool in the Barclays Premier League this Sunday.

The manager said: "The players followed the momentum we had from the game at West Brom against Burnley. I don't know how to explain our cup form but we know that our priority is the league.

"Liverpool on Sunday is a big game. We want to stay up. It will be different, physically and tactically, and our target is to win. We can build from many positives things but we also learn from our mistakes. The last three months there are more positives than negatives."
