West Bromwich Albion thumped abject West Ham 4-0 at the Hawthorns to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals.
Club record signing Brown Ideye scored twice, with James Morrison and Saido Berahino also on the scoresheet, as Tony Pulis's side hit top gear.
Sam Allardyce's Hammers endured a rare off day, with Morgan Amalfitano sent off in the second half for raising his hands at Chris Brunt.
Chris Brunt will again skipper West Brom for Saturday's FA Cup fifth-round tie with West Ham at The Hawthorns with Darren Fletcher cup tied.
Following his deadline day arrival from Manchester United, Fletcher took over the captain's armband from Brunt for Albion's two Premier League games over the past week.
Striker Victor Anichebe is a doubt with a groin strain, whilst midfielder Callum McManaman may only figure on the bench after picking up a knock in midweek but goalkeeper Boaz Myhill may play after recently recovering from a finger injury and midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu is available after the African Nations Cup.
West Brom squad: Foster, Myhill, Pocognoli, Wisdom, Lescott, Baird, Dawson, McAuley, McManaman, Morrison, Dorrans, Yacob, Mulumbu, Brunt, Gardner, Sessegnon, Berahino, Anichebe, Ideye.
Saido Berahino lacks the right influences in his life to make the best decisions for his career, according to Tony Pulis.
The West Brom boss was unhappy with an interview Berahino gave this week expressing his wish to move on to bigger things and the striker found himself on the bench for Sunday's Barclays Premier League draw at Burnley.
Pulis hopes new signing Darren Fletcher can be a guiding hand for 21-year-old Berahino, who was called up to the full England squad earlier this season.
Fletcher arrived from Manchester United on Monday and was made captain for his first game, taking the armband from Chris Brunt.
"Brunty is happy to give Darren the captaincy and concentrate on his football," said Pulis. "I felt Darren was what we needed in the dressing room. We needed a leader and he has been wonderful."
