McCarthy and Hitz to Play Against Burnley
There seems to be a lot of speculation that Benni McCarthy may be given a start against Burnley. McCarthy was left out of West Ham's Premier League squad but is available for the FA Cup.
Personally I can't see it. You would think that Grant would use the match to try and develop the partnership with Cole and Demba Ba up front. Thomas Hitzlsperger played 72 minutes for the reserves this week, so expect to see the midfielder in action for some of this game.
Lawro is predicting a 2-1 West Ham win and says Grant is likely to pick a strong side for the game.
