Cup triumph in pictures

West Ham United are looking forward to Saturday's visit of Arsenal after a tremendous midweek win against Birmingham City.

The Hammers will go to St Andrew's for the second leg on a high but are back to Barclays Premier League action this weekend with all focusing fully on the Gunners. Manager Avram Grant will have Wayne Bridge in his ranks and will hope his team can make it four straight wins at home.

As the countdown to kick-off continues, whufc.com looks back on a great night at the Boleyn on Tuesday. Check out our exclusive photo gallery....
