FA Cup Quarter Finals

Saturday 18th March

Manchester City v Burnley (5.45pm)

Vincent Kompany will get a warm welcome back at the club he captained to Premier League title success but now as manager of Championship leaders Burnley. The Clarets look set for a quick return back to the Premier League, but face a City team on a high after an incredible 7-0 thrashing of Red Bull Leipzig in midweek, in which Braut Haaland scored five goals.

Sunday 19th March

Sheffield United v Blackburn Rovers (12.00pm)

Second place in the Championship table takes on fifth place in what should be an interesting game between two teams with Premier League promotion ambitions this season. Rovers got the better of the Blades just a couple of weeks ago in the league, but with the home team having the advantage in recent times in this game, could the Blades strike back here?
