FA Cup 5th Round Action

FA Cup 5th Round Action

The FA Cup is back in action this weekend, and all eyes will be on Crawley Town as they attempt to overcome the mighty Manchester United.

Today’s action comes from the fifth round of the FA Cup, while there are fourth round replays also being played today.

The early game of the day features the only all Premiership clash, which sees Everton travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Premiership Champions Chelsea.

Chelsea have all but conceded their Premiership title this season, and are now looking at the FA Cup and Champions League, as their main chances of wining silverware this season.

In one of two three o clock kick-offs, Stoke welcome Brighton and Hove Albion to The Britannia Stadium.

Tony Pulis’s men will be expecting a tough game against the championship outfit, and this encounter may prove to be a physical one as both teams attempt to make it to the quarter finals of the competition.

Carling Cup finalists Birmingham welcome Sheffield Wednesday to St. Andrews today.

Birmingham will have their Carling Cup final encounter with Arsenal in their minds, and Sheffield Wednesday may look to take advantage.

However, the Championship outfit are out of sorts, and are currently in a bad run of form in the Championship.

The late kick-off comes from Old Trafford, where Manchester United welcome non-league outfit Crawley Town for their 5th round encounter.

Crawley have enjoyed a fairytale ride so far in this season’s competition, and they will neeed that honeymoon to continue today if they are to overcome Alex Ferguson’s men.
