Sunday’s FA Cup Action

Todays action in the FA Cup sees two lower league teams tackle the might on the Premiership, while there is also an all Premiership clash in the 3pm kick off.

The early kick off sees Notts County travel to the Manchester Stadium to take on Manchester City.

Mancini’s men can still mathematically win the league this season, and they are very much in the race for a Champions League spot as they currently occupy third place.

Notts County will have to step up their game from their usual League 1 opponents, but may be boosted by the fact that City were in Europa League action during the week, in which they had to travel to Greece.

The all Premiership encounter comes from Craven Cottage today, as Fulham welcome Bolton for their FA clash.

Both teams have been in relatively good form this season, and currently occupy comfortable positions in the league.

The meeting between the two sides has the potential to be a classic FA Cup encounter, as both teams like to play attacking football, and are also defensively sound as of late.

The late kick off sees Arsenal travel to Leyton Orient, with Wenger’s men still buzzing after their amazing fightback against Barcelona midweek.

Orient however can look to Arsenal’s cup ties against Leeds this season, where they were held to a draw and were lucky not to loose.

Kick-off at the Matchroom Stadium is ay 16:30.
