As England’s football calendar scrambles to finish by August, the Premier League takes a backseat this weekend as the FA Cup quarter-finals come back into view following a three-month delay.
The tournament’s last eight is made up entirely of top-flight teams for the first time in 14 years, with heavyweights Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal still in the running.
The Citizens face Newcastle United and are widely predicted to advance and eventually become the first team to defend the FA Cup since Arsenal in 2015. They took the title from 2018 winners Chelsea, who will be tasked with overcoming Leicester City on Sunday.
Sheffield United will attempt to their miserable run of form since resuming play at home to Arsenal, while the Red Devils travel to Norwich City on Saturday in this season’s first quarter-final.
