Emmanuel Emenike got a brace against Blackburn Rovers in a 5-1 win in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Saturday but the forward believed he could have scored more.

The Nigeria International got his first goal for the club in the 64th minute and the second in the 85th minute to secure an easy route to the quarterfinals.
The 28-year-old was delighted with his goals for his new team since his loan switch from Fernabache but the striker would have been over the moon if he scored more.

 “I could have had more but I want to thank God for today and for the victory. I also want to thank the management,” Emenike told BT Sports.

“The game was open when it was ten against ten and we could have scored more. I am happy with my goals and for the team,” he concluded.

The forward made his first full 90 minutes with Slaven Bilic’s team and the club captain, Mark Noble was also full of praise for the Nigerian.
 “Obviously, we lost out on Andy [Carroll] during the week but Emenike has come in and has been great for us today," said Noble.

“I have said what I think about him. He is a top player and a top pro. To be fair Dimitri [Payet] has been there and scored goals but Emenike has come in for his first start and get a couple of goals in the FA Cup is fantastic for him.
“He has waited a long time to get this move into the Premier League and I am over the moon for him. You can see how happy he is.

“You can see the options we had from the bench today with Song and Manuel coming on which is great. We are looking strong. It was a tough opening 20 minutes and it was what we expected from a proud club but we got hold of the game and got back into it with a couple of bits of magic,” he concluded.
