21 February 2016, 20:54Israel Ojoko

London - Emmanuel Emenike opened his West Ham goal account with a brace on Sunday in a 5-1 victory to ease into the FA Cup quarter-finals at Championship side Blackburn.

Ben Marshall had put the home side ahead with just 20 minutes into the game with the hope that they will maintain the lead.

But Victor Moses's equaliser squirmed in and Payet's free-kick put West Ham ahead before Blackburn were reduced to 10 men by Chris Taylor's red card.

Emmanuel Emenike converted twice either side of Cheikhou Kouyate's dismissal, then Payet added a superb solo goal to ensure the game ended 5-1 in favour of the Premier League team.

Emenike joined West Ham in January for a loan that will run till the end of the season, with an option of extending the contract.

The 28-year-old has played 37 times for Nigeria, featured at the 2014 World Cup and was part of the squad which won the 2013 African Cup of Nations.
