Weekend Preview: FA Cup Quarter Final Action Takes Centre Stage

FA Cup: Wolves v Coventry

Wolves vs Coventry

Wolves and Coventry will square off in an FA Cup Quarter Final at Molineux. With Wolves safely atop the Premier League and Coventry vying for a spot in the Championship Playoffs, both teams are playing well. Wolves haven’t advanced to the FA Cup Semi-finals since 2019. Coventry hopes to make their first trip to Wembley since winning the FA Cup in 1987. Even though there hasn’t been a meeting between these sides since 2014, the last few meetings have been fiercely competitive, with both teams scoring goals most of the time. This matchup promises to be a thrilling competition for a desired semi-final spot.

FA Cup: Man City v Newcastle

Man city vs Newcastle

This coming weekend, in the FA Cup Quarter Final, Manchester City takes on Newcastle United after a draw with Liverpool. Manchester City wants to win the FA Cup again and exacts revenge on Newcastle for their Carabao Cup loss earlier this season. Despite losing to Chelsea recently, Newcastle have been welcoming back more faces through injury, and with this being their only chance at silverware this season, they will be looking to build on their earlier season Carabao Cup victory over City. Although they have a solid historical record against Newcastle, the visitors are hoping to pull off an upset and make it to the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time since 2005. With Newcastle seeking their first major trophy in nearly 70 years and Manchester City looking to retain their crown, both teams have their sights firmly set on the trophy.

EPL: Burnley v Brentford

Burnley vs Brentford

Burnley’s Premier League season is in dire straits and are currently second-last in the table with only 14 points from 28 games. Their recent 1-1 draw with West Ham brought their losing streak to an end at eleven games, condemning the side to a likely relegation. Brentford, despite their outstanding performance last season under Thomas Frank, are also struggling. They are in 15th place, just five points above the relegation zone. Despite showing good fight against Arsenal in their last game, conceding a late goal resulted in their fifth consecutive loss.

EPL: Luton v Nottingham Forest

Luton vs Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest visits Luton Town on Saturday in a pivotal relegation match. Despite their encouraging return to the Premier League, Luton are finding it difficult to win and are currently in 18th place, while Forest lead them by three points with ten games remaining. Both teams are struggling; Forest have dropped their previous four games, while Luton have not won in seven. With the season almost over, a loss may send Forest into the relegation zone.

EPL: Fulham v Tottenham

Fulham vs Tottenham

Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur will play in a Premier League encounter at Craven Cottage this Friday. Fulham’s recent play has been erratic, with three wins and two defeats in their previous five games. They hope to move up the standings from their current 12th position. Tottenham, on the other hand, are in good shape, having lost only once in their last six games. They’ll want to win and move into the coveted top-four position, where they are currently only two points behind.

FA Cup: Chelsea v Leicester

Chelsea vs Leicester

Chelsea’s season has been disappointing. Currently 11th in the Premier League and out of the top four races, their only remaining trophy chance is the FA Cup. Meanwhile, Leicester City, who are currently dominating the Championship table and have a great chance of returning to the Premier League, will try to Stamford Bridge full of confidence. They are in much the better form, having drawn with Hull City and won against Sunderland of late. Despite Chelsea’s recent narrow league win against Newcastle, Leicester seems to have more momentum coming into this FA Cup clash.

FA Cup: Man Utd v Liverpool

Man Utd vs Liverpool

An epic clash is on the cards in the FA Cup quarterfinals as Manchester United prepares to host their arch-rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford this coming weekend. While United have shown inconsistency with recent results, they’ll be seeking to maintain their winning momentum after defeating Everton 2-0 last weekend thanks to two penalties. Liverpool, on the other hand, are on an incredible nine-game unbeaten streak, with eight wins and one draw. Liverpool have demonstrated their offensive side with 28 goals scored in those nine games while maintaining a strong defensive record with only six goals conceded. 

EPL: West Ham v Aston Villa

West Ham vs Aston Villa

Aston Villa, who are currently 4th in the EPL standings, will play an away encounter against West Ham United, currently in 7th position. While Villa have a solid offensive record (6th in goals scored), their defense has lately conceded four goals and is ranked 7th in goals allowed. Ollie Watkins, a key player, currently leads the club in goals but could miss out through injury this weekend. West Ham United, which averages 1.6 goals per match (9th in the league), will rely on Jarrod Bowen’s scoring efficiency (5th in the EPL). Their defense, rated 14th in goals allowed, may face a challenge against Villa’s potent attack.
