  12. Mourinho back at Chelsea, live on the BBC

    Chelsea v Man Utd (Monday, 19:45 GMT)

    Chelsea v Manchester United this season

    The final match of the FA Cup quarter-final programme is on Monday night and it features two footballing heavyweights live on BBC TV and radio, with Jose Mourinho returning to his old stomping ground at Stamford Bridge as Manchester United face Premier League leaders Chelsea.  

    United have reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup on a record-equalling 28 occasions, seven times more than their west London opponents, but the Blues  thrashed them 4-0 in the league meeting this season and also won the last FA Cup meeting between the sides, 1-0 in a replay four years ago.

  15. Two teams in form for White Hart Lane farewell

    Tottenham v Millwall (Sunday, 14:00 GMT)

    Harry Kane scores for Spurs last weekend

    It's the final FA Cup tie at the existing White Hart Lane tomorrow and Spurs, unbeaten at the Lane this term, have never lost at home to Millwall, winning 12 and drawing two of their 14 meetings.

    Millwall, who once boasted an on-loan Harry Kane in their forward line, are on an unbeaten run of 17 matches - winning 11 - which is their best since a similar streak in 1965, but their remarkable sequence of clean sheets ended at nine in the 2-1 home win over MK Dons last weekend.

    There is live coverage of the match on the BBC TV and radio.

  16. BreakingSurtees dies aged 83

    Some sad news.

    John Surtees, the only man to have been world champion on two wheels as well as four, has died aged 83.

  17. In-form Imps relishing Arsenal test

    Arsenal v Lincoln (Saturday, 17:30 GMT)

    Lincoln against Burnley

    The second FA Cup quarter-final is the intriguing contest between Arsene Wenger's under-achieving Arsenal and Danny Cowley's non-league Lincoln.

    The sides have not met in a competitive fixture since 1915 - with Lincoln holding the advantage from a 1-0 win 102 years ago - and this will be the first encounter in the FA Cup.

    Arsenal have only lost one FA Cup tie against a lower league club under Wenger - against Championship side Blackburn in 2013.

    But the Imps have lost just two of their last of their last 24 games in all competitions - winning 19 - and were clinical in the last round, going through to the last eight by scoring with their only shot on target against Burnley last month.

  18. Boro's knockout blows against City

    Middlesbrough v Manchester City (Saturday, 12:15 GMT)

    Let's focus on the FA Cup quarter-finals now, and of the four matches, the least discussed by the neutrals is perhaps the first one of the weekend, the all-Premier League fixture between Middlesbrough and Manchester City at lunchtime on the banks of the River Tees.

    Boro may be struggling in the relegation zone, 34 points behind their affluent opponents, but they claimed a 1-1 draw at the Etihad in November and have knocked out City in four of their last five FA Cup meetings, most recently in the fourth round in 2014-15.

    However, Boro are winless in 10 league games since Christmas, failing to score in seven of them, while City are the top scoring team left in the FA Cup this season with 13 goals.
