They were absolutely superb from start to finish, and were helped when West Ham went down to 10 men straight after the break after Masuaku spat at Nick Powell.

"Premier League games come around quickly and we'll get some players back fit, but obviously we've lost a couple more today". "I've enjoyed him so I'd have to say it is out of character".

There is treat for football fans over the next couple of days with a full round of midweek Premier League fixtures on the slate, with the London Derby between West Ham and Crystal Palace a particularly important game.

Two goals from Grigg helped Wigan cruise past hapless West Ham and claim their second consecutive Premier League scalp in this season's FA Cup.
