The FA Cup quarter-final draw is almost upon us with the fifth round of ties well underway.
Last night’s action saw Chelsea record an impressive 2-0 win over Liverpool at Stamford Bridge as Willian and Ross Barkley found the net against the European champions.
Elsewhere, Newcastle recorded a narrow 3-2 victory over West Brom and Sheffield United dumped Reading out of the competition courtesy of Billy Sharp’s strike in extra-time.
Three more games take place this evening with Leicester hosting Birmingham, Sheffield Wednesday taking on Manchester City and Norwich paying a visit to Tottenham.
The final game of the fifth round sees Wayne Rooney’s Derby take on his former side Manchester United tomorrow evening, while Arsenal already secured their spot with a 2-0 win over Portsmouth on Monday night.
