FA Cup Quarter Finals: All you need to know

Manchester United take on Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday, the two fierce rivals haven’t met since earlier on in the season where United and Liverpool battled it out to 0-0 draw in December.

The red devils haven’t won the FA Cup since 2016 when Louis Van Gaal was in charge where they beat Crystal Palace in the final.

Liverpool last won the FA Cup in 2022 when they beat Chelsea in the final and they will be looking grab four trophies this time around as they are in all competitions still after winning the Carabao Cup last month.

While Manchester City are chasing a second straight treble, This treble had only been achieved once before in the history of English football prior to last season’s feat but City are well placed to manage it in back-to-back seasons. Newcastle United are the quarter-final opponents in this FA Cup quarter-final at the Etihad Stadium.

Newcastle United have already knocked them out of the Carabao Cup this season but that when they were on fine form back then but are really struggling at the moment with results and not conceding goals.

they were on fine form back then but are really struggling at the moment with results and not conceding goals.

A Coventry win at Molineux would make it the second time they have reached the FA Cup semi-finals, with the last time resulting in them going on to successfully lift the trophy in 1987.

The competition also holds a special place in the heart of Sky Blues manager, Mark Robins. As he scored a goal for Sir Alex Ferguson’s United in 1990 where they won it that year.

As for Wolves, despite injuries to all three first-choice forwards, the expectation will be that O’Neil’s team find a way past the Sky Blues. They would finally be underdogs in the last four though providing they get through.

Chelsea will be chasing another tie at Wembley with them facing Championship Leaders Leicester City.

This game has become a must win for Pochettino as his record in cup competitions doesn’t help his reputation. just as in the Carabao Cup Chelsea have been handed a favourable draw.

As for Leicester this would be seen as a really big opportunity to get to Wembley as they will be favourites to go up automatically but even to go up from teh championship as league champions.

Jamie Vardy, with 10 goals in his last 11 appearances, could be their key weapon but the 37-year-old has just four goals against Chelsea, a team he has played against more times than any other in his career (21).
