FA Cup fifth round

TEAM NEWS

West Ham will give a debut to Thomas Hitzlsperger in their FA Cup fifth round clash with Burnley on Monday.
The fitness of James Tomkins (calf) and Matthew Upson (Achilles) will be assessed over the weekend.
Burnley will be without January signings Charlie Austin and Marvin Bartley as both are cup-tied.
Ex-Newcastle defender David Edgar could come into contention after his loan move to Swansea City broke down because of a problem with the paperwork.

BIG-MATCH FACTS

The tie in context
• Burnley are one of two representatives from the Championship in the fifth round.
Gulf in class

Head-to-head

• Burnley won the most recent clash, 2-1 in the Premier League, on 6 February last year. It was their first triumph in 11 meetings.

FA Cup records and best performances
• West Ham hold a 100% FA Cup record against Burnley.

1 - 0

I doubt West Ham will be motivated because it's a late cold kick off.
